If Italy were poor, Sweden were worse and couldn’t even register a shot on target – two games in running in the Euros now. Zlatan Ibrahimovic missing from close range was the only highlight from the match. The loss comes on the heels of a disappointing opening game share of spoils against Northern Ireland. Sweden will now have to go all-out for a win in their final fixture to stay alive. Even if they miss out on a spot in the second round, there wouldn’t be many complaining!
Player of the game
There were many questions on the lack of fire power within the Italian ranks. Though Graziano Pelle did enough to quell those against Belgium – the incision from this team is always a doubt. Eder sprang a cool surprise for Conte by converting a typical chance and this should ease some of his concerns. Late goals are always a striker’s dream and Eder got one for his memoirs against Sweden.
