    • Sweden
    • 90' And it's full-time in Amsterdam, where the Dutch have enjoyed blockbuster 4-1 victory against Ibrahimovic's Sweden. The visitors looked dangerous at times in the second half, but had already left themselves far too much to do at 4-0 down. Classy performance from the Dutch.
    • 69' GOAL! Well, they've left it late, the Swedes, but it looks like there might finally be a fightback on the cards in Amsterdam! Andreas Granqvist hammers in Sebastian Larsson's free-kick with an expertly taken volley from close range, but questions have to be asked of the Dutch defence, who just let the ball land on his foot!
    • 59' GOAL! 4-0 NETHERLANDS! It's a rout now in Amsterdam, as Afellay gets a brace of his own with a deft first touch at the far post to bamboozle a sliding defender, and a confident finish into the roof of the net.
    • 55' GOAL! 3-0! The mountain just got a little bit steeper for Sweden, as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar grabs a second for the Netherlands, heading in a quality delivery from five yards
    • 45' It's half time in Amsterdam, and the Dutch have impressed on their way to a 2-0 lead over Sweden. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has failed to make a mark at the home of his former club, Ajax.
    • 36' GOAL! Ibrahim Afellay caps a beautiful move from the Dutch attack, hitting Wesley Sneijder's square ball early past the flailing Andreas Isaksson. 2-0 to Netherlands, can Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspire his Swedish side to an unlikely comeback in Amsterdam?
    • 4' GOAL! 1-0 Netherlands! What a start for the beaten World Cup finalists, who have taken a fourth-minute lead through Schalke hitman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
    • 1' Netherlands are up and running against Sweden, in what is likely to be an entertaining encounter at the Amsterdam ArenA!
