Sweden were pretty poor against Ireland, but gave a much better account of themselves against Italy and really should have gotten something from the game. Can they rally and recover from their late defeat to Italy and grab a win from this game? Certainly capable, now would be a great time for Ibra to shine. A win would take them through in 2nd, a draw probably won't be enough to finish as one of the best placed 3rd teams. So for them its win or bust.

For Belgium, a draw would be enough for them to finish 2nd, so might be a little more cautious in this game. A defeat might still see them go through, but they have to be thinking about staying solid and getting anything they can from the game.

Can Sweden pull off an upset and of through. Or will Belgium get what they need to finish 2nd? Looking forward to this one more than the Italy v Ireland game tbh, should be a cracker.

Well we have to win. So we'll get a spirited 0-0 draw or something, I don't know, maybe we'll get smashed. I'm so jetlagged I won't remember the game anyway.

There's no time difference between France and Sweden mate.

Good win for Belgium tonight, they definitely seem to have picked up since that Italy game, taking 6 points with 2 clean sheets. Hungary in the last 16 is definitely a game they'll fancy their chances in as well. Sweden have been very disappointing however, really thought they'd take 3rd spot at least, and it brings Ibra's international career to a shitty end.
