Half-time: Sweden 0-0 Switzerland The first half ends with the deadlock resolutely unbroken. It’s been reasonably entertaining, but teams are sorely lacking in quality in the final third. They’ve both had chances, with Sweden missing the pick of them.

Ekdal misses a sitter in front of the goal. A cross swung in from the right finds him free and in front of the gaping goal. Ekdal goes for the first time volley and misses the target. Rodriguez crosses into the Sweden penalty area from the left. Olsen punches clear under pressure from Steven Zuber. That’s your lot for the first half.

Xherdan Shaqiri gets another good ball into the Sweden box, but there’s nobody there to attack it. Both sides looking very toothless here – if either had a finisher worthy of the name, we’d have a few goals by now.

A shocking, shocking miss by Albin Ekdal, who sidefoots high over the bar from about six yards out with the goal gaping. Standing in splendid isolation, he got on the end of a cross from the right from Lustig, but elected to volley the cross rather than head it. An astonishing miss that could haunt him to the grave.
