Qualification update

So it's Spain's night, despite not winning, as their draw takes them six points clear of Romania and five of Sweden, with both still to play each other.

Sweden are one in front of Romania and November 15 looks set to be an absolute classic when the two meet. If the worst happens for the Scandinavian side then Romania still have another game with group leaders Spain to manouvre through.

Elsewhere, Ireland's loss to Switzerland means they couldn't book their place at next summer's finals just yet.

FULL-TIME!

FULL-TIME: Sweden 1-1 Spain (Berg 50' - Rodrigo 92')

The point that takes Spain to the Euros, stolen in the dying embers with Sweden on the cusp of victory.

Spain were the better side in the first 45 although Sweden edged the second - a draw probably the fair result as Roberto Moreno's experimental squad underwhelmed. It isn't all bad for Sweden, though, as Norway equalised in the last minute in Romania to keep them in the top two. Embed from Getty Images

Pandemonium

3:34 PMa year ago

GOOOALLLLL!!! 1-1!!!

92' GOAL SPAIN! Rodrigo slams home after a corner, it's absolute chaos and a check with the assistant took place but the goal is given and Spain are off to the Euro's!
3:32 PMa year ago

Four added minutes

90' Sweden are four minutes away from a terrific victory in Stockholm.
3:25 PMa year ago

Spain plugging away

83' How tired must the older legs in that Swedish squad be now, especially given they played just a few days ago as well. Ekdal, one of those older experienced players, has come off.
3:20 PMa year ago

Sweden sub

Quaison comes off for 19-year-old Isak. The youngster does a good job in bringing down the average age of the side which was 26.
3:11 PMa year ago

Ceballos booked

69' Foul made, whistle blows but Ceballos doesn't hesitate to clatter into a yellow shirt as the stoppage begins and is rightly cautioned.
3:09 PMa year ago

Spain go close

67' Moreno gets his head to a Ceballos cross, but it edges agonisingly wide of the far upright.
3:08 PMa year ago

Pressure on Sweden...and Spain

64' Romania have opened the scoring at home to Norway, meaning it is imperative Sweden win or, as it stands, they would drop out of the qualification spots.

Pressure on Spain as well who still have to play Romania and will only have three points separating them from dropping out of the top two, also as it stands.

Romania still have to play both next month. Huge games.

3:05 PMa year ago

Shock on the cards

The Swedish players celebrate their opening goal. Can they hold on?

3:02 PMa year ago

De Gea injured

60' David de Gea looked to have picked up an injury in the first half. Kicking the ball he appears to have aggravated that again and Kepa will replace him.

Could be bad news for United who play Liverpool at the weekend.

3:00 PMa year ago

Spanish chance

58' Great header from Rodri is gathered by Olsen. First Spanish chance for a little while.
2:55 PMa year ago

Swedish delight

54' Romania have MISSED a penalty in their home game against Norway. As it stands the gap between the two sides will extend to three points with two games left to play.
2:54 PMa year ago

Sweden on top

53' Forsberg races through but can't get any power into his shot and De Gea gathers easily.
2:53 PMa year ago

GOAL! 1-0 SWEDEN!

50' GOAALLLLL!!! A HUGE GOAL FOR SWEDEN! A tremendous cross meets the head of Marcus Berg who is kept out superbly by De Gea. At the second time of asking he has the ball in the back of the net.

A massive goal for Sweden's qualification hopes!

2:48 PMa year ago

Back underway

46' We're underway for the second half in Stockholm.
2:33 PMa year ago

HALF-TIME

HALF-TIME: Sweden 0-0 Spain

The fourth official had signalled an extra minute of additional time but the referee blew up after just ten seconds...

Spain on top here but don't look too co-ordinated at the back. Anyone's game, this.

2:31 PMa year ago

Spain looking ropey

44' Sweden back on the offensive at the expense of Spain's own errors. Most notably Rodri received a short ball from De Gea but nearly gave the ball up a few yards from goal.
2:23 PMa year ago

Wide from Fabian

36' The Spanish midfielder takes on a long range effort but never had a hold on it as it flies over Olsen's crossbar. Carvajal is okay to continue after that previous stoppage. Embed from Getty Images
2:21 PMa year ago

Stoppage

35' A powerful Swedish drive floors Carvajal. Thankfully he's up but he may have to leave the field.
2:19 PMa year ago

What a save!

33' Terrific, terrific save from De Gea keeps out Quaison. Lustig's cross finds the forward but the United 'keeper stretches an arm and tips it over the crossbar.
2:13 PMa year ago

Sweden pressure

26' The home side are finally starting to come into their own as they flood the Spanish box. Lustig fires a shot from 25-yards which takes De Gea a couple of attempts to gather.
2:06 PMa year ago

Olsen starring

20' Debutant Moreno nods on a Carvajal cross but it's pushed behind.
2:05 PMa year ago

Dominance

19' 81% possession for visitors Spain tonight. Sweden struggling to get a foothold in a game where they desperately need a point at the very least.
1:58 PMa year ago

Another huge save from Olsen

11' Olsen is keeping Sweden in this as a corner to the back post meets Rodri, but his effort is kept out at point-blank range.

Sweden have strung together EIGHT passes in this opening ten minutes.

1:54 PMa year ago

Huge Spanish chance

8' Thiago tries a curled effort from the edge of the box which is blocked but rebounds back into his path. He dances towards goal and attempts to round Olsen but the Swedish 'keeper's outstretched hand denies a certain opener.
1:49 PMa year ago

History

3' International number 700 for the visitors tonight!
1:47 PMa year ago

Kick-off

1' We're underway at the Friends Arena in Stockholm!
1:46 PMa year ago
After the events of yesterday evening in Sofia, it is welcome relief to see both sets of players here standing shoulder to shoulder, brandishing an 'equal game' sign.
1:42 PMa year ago

The anthems

Both anthems impeccably observed - we're ready to go!
1:40 PMa year ago

Here come the teams!

The sides are on their way out in Stockholm...
1:33 PMa year ago

10 minutes to go!

Not long now until kick-off at the Friends Arena - tweet me (@ABullionsSport) your predictions and I'll post a few.
1:12 PMa year ago

Going well

So far so good for the youth sides of tonight's teams - Sweden lead 3-0 against Luxembourg whilst Spain now have their second against Montenegro.
1:10 PMa year ago

Who's already qualified?

In Group B, Ukraine secured qualification with a 2-1 home win over Euro and Nations League holders Portugal last night, whilst Poland have comfortably made it out of Group G. Belgium and Russia make up the two qualification spots from Group I with Italy securing their place at next summer's competition also.

If Ireland win away at Switzerland tonight, they'll become the next nation to book their place in the 24, whilst Spain will qualify with victory over Sweden - provided Romania drop points at home to Norway.

Olsen, Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Bengtsson, Larsson, Olsson, Ekdal, Forsberg, Berg, Quaison.

Spain predicted XI

De Gea, Carvajal, Martinez, Ramos, Bernat, Ruiz, Rodri, Saul, Rodrigo, Moreno, Oyarzabal.
11:57 AMa year ago

Team news

Andersson has no new injury concerns to wrestle with, though Manchester United centre-half Victor Lindelof could return to the side after sitting out the 4-0 win over Malta.

Spain's eleven that drew with Norway should be largely the same for tonight though the likes of Dani Carvajal and Inigo Martinez could feature.

11:52 AMa year ago

Last time out

Goals from Marcus Danielson, Sebastian Larsson and an Andrei Agius own goal helped Sweden thrash Malta 4-0 on Saturday and close the gap on their Spanish counterparts who dropped points away at Norway thanks to Josh King's equaliser from the spot in the 94th minute.
1:02 PMa year ago

Form

Sweden are without loss at home since January, a 1-0 loss to neighbours Finland being that defeat. Since then  their only loss was the reverse fixture of Tuesday's, with Spain running out convincing 3-0 winners.

Competitively, a 3-2 defeat to Turkey in the Nations League last September acts as their most recent at home. Janne Andersson's side have won four of their seven group games and drawn twice.

Spain, meanwhile are undefeated, with a draw last time out against Norway preventing a 100% record. They are without defeat since consecutive losses to England and Croatia respectively in last year's Nations League.


12:51 PMa year ago

The permutations

Tuesday's huge game features Group F's top two sides, with visitors Spain five points better off and in need of just a draw to book their place at next summer's tournament.

As for Sweden, they have their hands on a playoff berth thanks to their Nations League group triumph but would prefer to progress through the safer, traditional route. However with Romania just one point behind and Norway not yet out of sight, a point at the very least would do for the Scandinavian side.
