Sweden are celebrating after clinching the only one of the seven European FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying groups to go to the final game, defeating Scotland 2-0 in Gothenburg to ensure their place in Canada next summer.

The 2003 runners-up and 2011 bronze-medallists only needed to avoid a 3-1 loss but were ahead on seven minutes when Therese Sjögran, earning her 199th cap, looped in a header. Any lingering doubt was erased when Lotta Schelin equalled Hanna Ljungberg's Sweden scoring record of 72 as she added a second.
