Germany were the chief beneficiaries as Sweden and the Republic of Ireland played out a hard-fought goalless draw in Solna.

Sweden's last Group C outing was that near-miraculous 4–4 draw with Germany in Berlin in October, and while tonight brought the same reward – a FIFA World Cup qualifying point – it was rather less spectacular fare.
