Sweden drew 0-0 with neighbours Denmark as both teams continued their preparations for the World Cup.

The best chance fell to Sweden's Isaac Kiese-Thelin late on but the striker spooned his shot over the bar.

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen missed the match just north of Stockholm as he awaits the birth of his first child at home in Denmark.

Sweden face Peru next while Denmark host Mexico with both games being played on Saturday, 9 June.

South Korea await Sweden in their first game in Nizhny Novgorod on 18 June, while Denmark open their tournament against Peru in Mordovia on 16 June.
