  • Sweden will take their place in Sunday's play-off draw, with ties next month
  • Zlatan Ibrahimović scores his eighth goal in as many qualifiers
  • Erkan Zengin nets third Sweden goal a year to the day after his second

    The final whistle is blown.
    Sweden did what they had to do on the night but Russia’s win against Montenegro means it is the play-offs for Erik Hamrén’s men. Zlatan Ibrahimović’s classy finishing and Erkan Zengin’s cool effort from range won the day for Sweden, who will learn their play-off fate in Sunday’s draw.
