  • Goal
    58
    Larsson (Sweden) scores!

  • Goal
    57
    Larsson (Sweden) scores!
    A sensational goal from Larsson on the break just as Bulgaria were threatening to equalise. Ljungberg creates the chance, feeding Edman down the left. Edman powers in a cross which Larsson dives fill-length to dramatically head home from the penalty spot.

    A. Svensson (Sweden) takes the corner.
    Pazin slices his clearance onto the roof of his net after Larsson's left-wing cross evades the forwards. Ljungberg is playing almost as a third striker hoping to punish Bulgaria on the break. Both sides are attacking with verve in the knowledge that the next goal could be decisive.
  • 48
    Zdravkov (Bulgaria) makes a save.
    An excellent stop from Zdravkov which keeps his side in the game after Ibrahimovic's back-heel set up Ljungberg, whose shot from ten metres out is well stopped by the diving No 1. A breathless start to the second half.
  • 48
    Ljungberg (Sweden) has an effort on goal.
  • 48
    Janković (Bulgaria) misses the target.
    Jankovic is playing in a more forward position and somehow directs a Ivailo Petkov header wide from only seven metres out. He was under pressure from Edman but should have hit the target.

    41
    Wilhelmsson (in) - Lucic (out) (Sweden)

  • Goal
    32
    Ljungberg (Sweden) scores!
    Ibrahimovic is the creator of the opening goal, beating the offside trap before bursting clear to draw the goalkeeper. As Zdravkov approaches, Ibrahimovic squares the ball across to Ljungberg who sidefoots the ball into an open net from five metres. It is only his fourth international goal in his 41st game.
