  1. Goodbye

    That's the end of this live text now. Handily, the Croatia v Czech Republic build-up is just starting over here.

    Almost as if we timed it like that.

    Bye now.

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Sweden have won four of their last seven games at major tournaments (D1 L2), as many victories as they had managed in their previous 19 games at the World Cup and European Championships combined.

    Some 88% of Sweden's goals at the European Championships have been scored in the second half of games (23/26), the highest percentage of any side with at least three goals at the tournament.

  4. Post update

    On BBC One now it's a Match of the Day: Top 10 show. It's on the best European Championship goals ever.

    I'd actually pick Patrik Schick's against Scotland.

  5. 'Sweden defence played well'

    Ashley Williams

    Former Wales captain on BBC One

    We were a little bit critical at half-time of Sweden's lack of intent and urgency. They came out second half and were completely different. What we haven't spoken about is the Sweden defence. Slovakia weren't up to much going forward but Sweden have got a rally good defence and they played well.

    Micah Richards

    Former England defender on BBC One

    Slovakia will be kicking themselves. The urgency from Sweden in the second half was brilliant. They had men forward, the timing was good and they controlled the game and it paid dividends in the second half.

  7. 'Slovakia had no punch going forward'

    Clinton Morrison

    Former Republic of Ireland striker on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    I don't think Slovakia have a natural goal scorer in their squad - it was comfortable for Sweden the whole game.

    In Slovakia's last game Poland went down to 10 men so it was a bit easier for them to create chances but today going forward they didn't have any punch.

    You have to credit Sweden they defended ever so well - they could go far in the tournament because they have that never-say-die attitude and they have players who can cause problems.

  8. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Sweden's last two goals at major tournaments have been in 1-0 wins with Emil Forsberg scoring the only goal (also against Switzerland in the 2018 World Cup last 16).

    Clinton Morrison

    Former Republic of Ireland striker on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    It's not a pretty way of playing but it is effective - Emil Forsberg and Alexander Isak cause teams a lot of problems and they were the difference as well as Robin Quaison when he came on. There is a good togetherness in this Sweden team.

  10. See the goal that settled the game

  11. FULL-TIME

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    It's all over. A crucial win for Sweden that takes them to the brink of the last 16.

    Slovakia might need a result against Spain to go through now.

  12. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    The VAR checks have been very quick at Euro 2020. Not even time to ramp up the tension there.

  13. Video Assistant Referee

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    There is a VAR check for a possible Slovakia penalty for a potential Seb Larsson handball.

    But the decision is NO PENALTY!

  14. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Sweden are holding on. But this might be Slovakia's last chance as Juraj Kucka fizzes over from distance.

  15. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Slovakia's keeper does come up this time - and the corner almost comes towards his head but it's deflected away.

  16. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Clinton Morrison

    Former Republic of Ireland striker on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Juraj Kucka has had a good game - I really like him in midfield, he's combative, he works hard he wants to get on the end of stuff. He's the complete midfielder and he's had a good game.

  17. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Good block by Emil Krafth to get in the way of David Hancko's volley.

    Corner to Slovakia.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Sweden bring on Emil Krafth for goalscorer Emil Forsberg.

  19. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 Slovakia

    Juraj Kucka attacks the corner but fouls a Swedish defender in the process as he heads over.

  20. Post update

    No they won't. Boooo.
