    FT: 0-0. It ends goalless in Seville, with Sweden holding on in the latter stages. Spain dominated most of the match, and will certainly be disappointed with the draw. They face bottom of group E in their next group match, with both sides having it all to play for!

    Gerard Moreno heads from the corner but it's comfortably wide of the back post. The Villarreal man has had a number of chances his coming on!
  • 93'
    Another chance for Spain!! Alba threatens once more, his corss flies across goal and simply hits Sarabia, whose effort is tame and Olsen easily gathers.
  • 91'
    6 minutes added on.
  • 90'

  • 89'
    Spain come close again!! Moreno tries to flick in Alba's cross, but it goes wide. Spain running out of options here!

  • 79'
    Moreno comes close to nodding Spain in front by Olsen gets hands to palm the ball away.
  • 75'
    Sweden change: Krafth on for Lustig.
  • 74'
    Spain double change: Oyarzabal on for Ferran, Gerard Moreno for Olmo

  • 46'

  • 45'
    HT: 0-0. A lively first half ends goalless. Spain have dominated much of the match and should have gone ahead through Morata, with Olsen being called into action on numerous occasions. A chance for Sweden's Isak at the end of the half will have shocked them, though, and that could well give life to an otherwise static Sweden side.
  • 45'
    1 minute added on.

  • 40'
    Morata is offside for Spain.
  • 38'

  • 37'
    Ekdal fouls Ferran as Spain looked to counter.

    Forsberg with the volley from the edge of the box, it flies into row Z. Well over.

    Alba penalised for hand-ball, Spain's attack comes to an end.
