  • Larsson comes in with a half-baked tackle on Lozano, sending the Mexican sprawling, and is booked. If Sweden make it through to the round of 16, he will play no part with a one-match ban now.

  • AUGUSTINSSON SCORES! SWEDEN LEAD 1-0! The left-back, unmarked 10 yards inside the Mexico box, catches Claesson's looped cross over the defence with a left-footed volley and puts it into the right corner despite Ochoa getting a hand to it. Sweden have the breakthrough!

  • But there is one now! Moreno bowls over Berg in the box and the referee points straight to the spot! The defender can't believe it but there's no need for VAR; the referee books him too for that clumsy tackle.

    61'
  • GRANQVIST MAKES IT 2-0 FOR SWEDEN! The captain steps up to take the penalty and, with little fanfare, blasts it into the top left corner. On the touchline, Jan Olof Andersson makes a small fist-pump. The Swedes are heading to the top of Group F as it stands.

  • 3-0 TO SWEDEN! It's a terrible own goal from Alvarez as he misses an attempted clearance and puts the ball into the back of his own net for an own goal. Mexico have been their own worst enemy in this second half; their hopes are hanging by a thread.

  • Layun is lucky to escape with a yellow card as he elbows Toivonen in the head during a challenge for a high-ball. Mexico's frustration is palpable.
