Hosts Sweden swept into the quarter-finals of UEFA Women's EURO 2013, scoring three times in the second half to defeat Italy and win Group A, though their opponents also went through as runners-up.

The teams came into their third group match knowing victory for either side would mean they topped the section. After a goalless first period, the Blågult took control, stepping up the pace devastatingly to delight the Halmstad crowd.

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Sweden end Group A as leaders after an electric start to the second half. Raffaella Manieri's own goal was followed by strikes from Lotta Schelin and Josefine Öqvist to secure the win. Italy responded through Melania Gabbiadini and will join tonight's opponents in the quarter-finals after Denmark and Finland drew 1-1.

    Gabbiadini (Italy) scores!
    Italy get one back but it is surely too late for a comeback. Raffaella Manieri swings a deep free-kick in from the left flank and the No8 times her run to the back post expertly before thumping a header past Kristin Hammarström.
