  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: It's all over and the Swedish players celebrate another impressive victory and a place in the last eight of the competition. It's no more than they deserve while Italy have to work on their own morale if they are going to join them there.

    Fischer (in) - Dahlkvist (out) (Sweden)
    Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Sweden have just made their first change and Dennerby will no doubt be looking to give others a breather the longer it stays at 2-0. His side don’t really look in any danger here.

  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Half-time and a welcome respite for Italy who have been over-run in Turku. It's no exaggeration to say Sweden could have been four goals up at this stage and Italy coach Pietro Ghedin has his work cut out trying to effect some changes to prevent their opponents claiming a quarter-final berth.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.

  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Sweden are so much on top it is difficult to see what Italy can do to stem the tide. There is a marked difference in physique and strength and Dennerby's side are making it count.

    Schelin (Sweden) scores!
    Victoria Sandell Svensson plays a wonderful reverse pass in behind the Italy defence for Lotta Schelin to latch on to and this time the striker makes no mistake by finishing under Anna Maria Picarelli.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: It's been another dynamic start from Sweden who had a golden chance to score inside the first 20 seconds and then forced a couple of corners. From the second Caroline Seger found the net but it was ruled out.

    Schelin (Sweden) has an effort on goal.
    A very early chance as Lotta Schelin finds herself one-on-one with Anna Maria Picarelli but the custodian stands tall to push the strike away.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Sweden have no players on a booking but if Italy's Roberta D'Adda is cautioned she will miss the Monday encounter with England.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Whoever wins this game will definitely play in the quarter-finals. If Sweden win they will clinch first place unless England beat Russia later on in Helsinki; if Italy win they will clinch first place unless Russia also win. The Group C winners will play the third-placed team from Group A or B on 4 September at the Helsinki Football Stadium.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Not surprisingly, Italy coach Pietro Ghedin has decided to stay with the eleven who beat England three days ago in Lahti. Sweden make one change with Thomas Dennerby adding Stina Segerström to the defence with Sara Larsson dropping down to the bench. It's an interesting switch with the Larsson-Charlotte Rohlin partnership dealing commendably with everything Russia threw at them in their first game. Segerström played in six of the qualifying games and scored two goals in the 7-0 defeat of Hungary in June 2007. The fact that the Göteborg FC player did not start in the first game is indicative of the strength in depth that Dennerby has in this position.
  • Trevor Haylett, Reporter, Turku Stadium: Welcome to the Turku Stadium for the UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ Group B match between Italy and Sweden. Both sides won their openers on Tuesday; Italy beating England 2-1 and Sweden prevailing 3-0 against Russia.
  • Lotta Schelin beats a player to reach the byline and cuts the ball back for Kosovare Asllani to take in her stride and whip past Anna Maria Picarelli.
