Updates by Patrick O Connor

96'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Spain and Sweden.

93'

Great cross by Alba but it surprises Sarabia and it bounces off him into the grateful arms of Olsen, another chance gone  a begging for the Spaniards

90'

 6 mis added time

90'

Brillant save from Olsen from a close range header by  Moreno

84'

Substitution

Pierre Bengtsson (in) - Emil Forsberg (out) (Sweden).

84'

Substitution

Jens Cajuste (in) - Kristoffer Olsson (out) (Sweden).

81'

Spain have had 13 chances on goal while Sweden have had only 4, but its still 0-0 with about 10 mins left 

80'

The benches have been emptied , in Spain's case they are trying to create the one chance that will give them the goal they deserve, while in Sweden's case it is a matter of providing fresh legs to help them see out the last 10 minutes without conceeding.

75'

Substitution

Emil Krafth (in) - Mikael Lustig (out) (Sweden).

72'

Substitution

Gerard Moreno (in) - Dani Olmo (out) (Spain).

Substitution

Viktor Claesson (in) - Alexander Isak (out) (Sweden).

69'

Substitution

Robin Quaison (in) - Marcus Berg (out) (Sweden).

66'

Substitution

Thiago Alcantara (in) - Rodrigo Henandez Cascante (Rodri) (out) (Spain).

65'

Substitution

Pablo Sarabia (in) - Alvara Morato (out) (Spain).

61'

Great footwork by Isak creates a chance for his fellow striker  Marcus Berg but he fluffs his lines and the ball goes wide, another chance for Sweden to take a shock lead.

60'

The pace of the game has really slowed , probably due to the heat, and Spain now look more laboured in their approach play.

54'

Yellow Card

Mikael Lustig (Sweden) is booked.

50'

The second half is exactly like the first half so far, Spain trying to break through the Swedish defence but having very little joy. If this pattern continues the Spanish manager Luis Enrique is going to  have to freshen things up from his subs bench

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Spain and Sweden has started.

45'

Its 0-0 at half time, it has been one of the most dominant performances by any team in the tournament so far, Spain have done everything but score but in one of the few sporadic attacks that Sweden have mounted they could have scored and Spain could actually have been 1-0 down.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Spain and Sweden.

44'

 1 min extra time

44'

Snap shot from Dani Olmo  draws a good save from Olsen.

40'

Quick break by Sweden, out of nowhere they almost score , Alexander Isak hits the post and the ball falls into the hands of keeper Unai Simon. lucky escape for Spain.

37'

Alvara Morato has the best chance of the match, he avails of a mistake by Marcus Danielson, but lacks conviction and does not even hit the target with  his shot.

35'

Sweden win their first corner but it is easily dealt with by the Spanish defence and they are back on the offensive immediately.

32'

Spain are in total control of the game , they are playing it around as if it were a training match while Sweden seem very lacking in  any ambition and it all makes for a very boring game.

28'

18 year old Pedri plays Koke in for another chance but again he blazes high and wide over the bar.

25'

The stats show that Spain have enjoyed 81 % possession after the first 25 mins,  an indication of their total dominance as well as Sweden's approach to the game which, essentially is ,all 11 players behind the ball.

23'

Koke has another half chance but he slices his shot wide of the post.

21'

It has taken Sweden over 20 minutes to mount their first attack, and the attack, a long throw from Victor Lindelof, comes to nothing

20'

It is 29 degree celcius in Seville tonight and the conditions are certainly impacting the game , it is being played at a fairly pedestrian pace

15'

Koke has the first attempt on goal, a downward header well inside the box but Olsen does very well to get a hand to it and push it out for a corner

13'

Spain have all the possession, moving the ball from side to side, albeit at a very slow pace, but apart from corners they have yet to test Robin Olsen in the Swedish goals.

5'

Spain dominating possession and they have forced two corners already, Sweden have barely crossed the half way line.

2'

Cagey opening to this game , neither side doing very much and  they seem content  to suss out the opposition.

1'

GAME ON!
