FULL-TIME: Sweden thought they had done enough to earn a point, but one bounce of the ball and one late defensive lapse allowed Villa to score the dramatic winner, virtually putting Spain into the last eight. Their place could be confirmed tonight as long as Russia don't claim full points against Greece.
Minute 90+2: GOAL SPAIN (1-2) DAVID VILLA scores the likely winner after a mostly poor outing tonight. A long ball from the back bounces away from Hansson and it falls to Villa in the area who slots past Isaksson. Fourth goal in two games for the striker. What a way to finish a lackluster effort for the striker.
Minute 90+1: Ljungberg has a strange effort on goal, lofting a shot well high when he could have done better.
Minute 90: The fourth official indicates three minutes will be added on here.
Minute 89: Great save by Isaksson! Torres has a crack at goal from 20 yards out, but the ball stays on the ground for the Swedish keeper to cleanly handle.
Minute 87: Kim Källström is the final switch here for Sweden with the midfielder coming on for Henrik Larsson.
Minute 83: Spain break forward but Villa is whistled for a foul. After a phenomenal performance against Russia, Villa has been virtually non-existent in this one.
Minute 79: So nearly the breakthrough for Sweden. Free kick to the near post finds Petter Hansson, and his touch goes across the face of goal and just misses a sliding Henrik Larsson.
Minute 79: Elmander had a pretty good match and he's removed now with Sebastian Larsson taking his place.
Minute 78: Sweden defending pretty well here, causing problems for the buildup of Spain.
Minute 72: Following a corner, the ball is headed around several times before Senna's last effort is caught by Isaksson.
Minute 68: Marcos Senna takes a violent shot on goal and it forces Isaksson into a low save. Very nice effort by the midfielder.
Minute 65: Isaksson is back up and makes an easy save as Torres weakly heads Silva's cross toward goal.
Minute 63: An incredible sequence of misses for Spain! Silva first is saved by Isaksson, Villa recovers the rebound and centers it back, but the shot is blocked away. Isaksson is down after being clashed into by Villa. Rami Shaaban is up warming just in case.
Minute 62: No angle on the shot for Torres, and it goes wide of the target.
Minute 59: And at the same time, Santi Cazorla replaces Iniesta. All the subs used now for Spain.
Minute 58: Here comes a substitution for Spain as Cesc Fabregas will come on to replace Xavi.
Minute 55: And now Sweden get their first booking with Svensson cautioned for his poke tackle on Silva.
Minute 53: First booking of the match coming for Spain's Carlos Marchena as he impeded the run of Elmander.
Minute 49: Squandered chance by Silva. Villa plays him in nicely, but Silva opts to give it back rather than take a seemingly open shot.
Minute 46: Sweden may still be worried about the knee of Ibrahimovic and he is off to start the second half, replaced by Markus Rosenberg.
HALF-TIME: Torres scored a nice opener for Spain, but Ibrahimovic got the leveller. Spain maybe should have had a penalty at the end of the half, but it wasn't to be and we're nodded at half-time.
Minute 45+1: Shouts for penalty in the Spanish area as Elmander crashes into Silva. Spain may have been hard done by that lack of a decision.
Minute 44: Ljungberg tries to play an ambitious one-two with Elmander, but it's dealt with by the Spanish defense.
Minute 39: Svensson has an ambitious effort from not too far off the left touchline, and it's well off the mark.
Minute 38: Giveaway by Sweden right to David Villa, but his volley is always going to be hard to hit, and Isaksson is able to gather.
Minute 34: GOAL SWEDEN (1-1) ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC scores after nearly botching a great chance! Fredrik Stoor crosses beautifully from the right to the far post where Ibrahimovic fluffs at the first effort, but defender Sergio Ramos loses his footing, giving Ibrahimovic a second chance which he manages to guide past Casillas.
Minute 33: Torres has a good run going into the area, but a poor touch concedes possession to Sweden.
Minute 29: Anders Svensson's free kick is nodded wide by Elmander in the area. Weak header and Casillas had it covered in any event.
Minute 24: Bad news for Spain as the aforementioned Puyol is coming off here and Raúl Albiol will come on in his place.
Minute 22: Another good chance for the Swedes. Ibrahimovic lofts the ball into the area for Larsson, but the striker volleys over the top. Carles Puyol had drifted out and was caught out by the Swedes that time.
Minute 16: And very nearly the equalizer for Sweden. Henrik Larsson beautifully plays the ball forward into the area for the charging Johan Elmander, but the striker-turned-midfielder today blazes it wide of the target.
Minute 15: GOAL SPAIN (0-1) FERNANDO TORRES answers that question with a goal. The corner is played short and eventually it comes to Silva at the top of the area and the midfielder sends it to the six-yard box for the Liverpool striker to poke past Andreas Isaksson. Great start for the Spaniards.
Minute 14: First corner kick here as Joan Capdevila plays it off Fredrik Stoor. What can Spain do with it?
Minute 9: Sweden break toward the goal after a giveaway deep by Torres, but in the end Fredrik Ljungberg can only slide a weak shot at Iker Casillas.
Minute 8: Xavi plays in a well-timed ball for the run of David Silva, but Silva can't do anything with it before being closed down by the Swedish rearguard.
Minute 6: Torres chases one down near the byline, but his desperation cross lands on top of the net.
Minute 4: Andrés Iniesta takes the first shot of the match off his left boot in space in the center, but it curls away from the target. All kinds of space, though, and someone missed their mark there for the Swedes.
Minute 2: At the other end, a fine run into the area by Fernando Torres is thwarted when his centering pass is cut out.
Minute 1: Spain's central defense looks suspect quite early as Zlatan Ibrahimovic finds space in the middle, but his touch lets down.
Minute 1: Dutchman Pieter Vink is the referee and his whistle gets us started in Innsbruck!
Pre-Game: If we have a winner in this game, that side will be well on their way to the quarter-finals, any certainty pending the outcome of the later match tonight between Russia and Greece. If these sides split the points, it will open the door for one of those sides tonight to get back into the thick of things.
Pre-Game: Sweden manager Lars Lagerbäck makes two changes from the side that defeated Greece 2-0 on Tuesday. Fredrik Stoor goes from the start tonight at right back in place of Niclas Alexandersson and Johan Elmander does the same for the injured Christian Wilhelmsson and will likely play just behind main strikers Henrik Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Pre-Game: For Luis Aragonés and Spain it's as you were in terms of the starting XI, with no changes made from the side that thrashed Russia 4-1.
