Event

  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Sweden were always in command thanks to two goals in the opening 15 minutes. Russia did not create enough to force themselves back into the game and they were made to pay by a wonderful third goal from Caroline Seger. Sweden will next play Italy on Friday while Russia take on England later that evening.

    The match is under way.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Russian coach Igor Shalimov has dropped a surprise with the inclusion of 19-year-old goalkeeper Elena Kochneva who wins her first cap. Elvira Todua who played in all ten qualifying games including the two play-off games against Scotland, is named among the substitutes.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Sweden have decided not to risk Nilla Fischer who has an achilles injury so Lisa Dahlkvist takes her place in midfield. She is the daughter of Sven 'Dala' Dahlkvist who played 39 times for Sweden between 1979 and 1985. The experienced Victoria Sandell Svensson, who has announced her retirement from international football after this tournament, wins her 162nd cap.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Then again perhaps history is on their side as that 1997 victory came at Russia's expense. It was a game played at Karlstad as Sweden hosted that year's UEFA European Women's Championship finals and it finished 2-1 to Sweden.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Sweden have to hope they can end a winless run in the opening matches of final tournaments that stretches back to the 1997 UEFA European Women's Championship. In eight attempts since then they have suffered six defeats in their first fixture and drawn the other two.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Welcome to Turku for the second of today's UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ Group C games, the clash between Sweden and Russia.
  • The resulting corner provides the opening goal as Elena Kochneva slips when backtracking to try and claim Therese Sjögran's corner with Charlotte Rohlin free to head in at the far post.
