Sweden complete Group 2 double over Lithuania

Sweden 4-0 Lithuania
Tommy Söderberg's team are top of qualifying Group 2 after defeating Lithuania for the second time in four days.

Sweden completed the double over Lithuania in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 2 with a comprehensive victory in Kalmar.

Four days after a solitary Mervan Celik goal earned Tommy Söderberg's team three points in the reverse fixture, Sweden found the going considerably easier on home soil.

Having been fouled by Karolis Urbaitis, Manchester City FC's John Guidetti started the scoring midway through the first half from the penalty spot. Jaunius Juozaitis rattled the crossbar with a header for Lithuania but it was Sweden, in complete control throughout, who doubled their lead 12 minutes after the break, Rasmus Jönsson striking a shot from just outside the penalty area past Emilijus Zubas.

The unmarked Samuel Armenteros made it 3-0 eight minutes from time, with Jönsson then claiming his second after being set up by Erdin Demir. Sweden are level with Slovenia, their opponents next month, at the top of the section, while Lithuania are without a point from four matches.
