England survived a late Swedish onslaught and moved closer to the Euro 2012 quarterfinals by earning a thrilling 3-2 win over Sweden, Friday 15 June 2012.
Substitute Theo Walcott was the main man for England, as he scored a goal and set up another in a frenetic encounter played at the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Walcott leveled in the 64th minute with a fierce shot and he delivered a fine cross to Danny Welbeck 12 minutes from time for the striker to tuck the ball in with a clever backheel and clinch England's first competitive victory over the Swedes.
England striker Andy Carroll had opened the scoring with a superb header midway through the first half but Sweden struck back thanks to a Glen Johnson own goal and Olof Mellberg's header.
England are joint top of Group D on four points with France who beat Ukraine 2-0 earlier on Friday.
Ukraine, who play England in the last round of matches on Tuesday, are third on three points and Sweden who have now been eliminated have none.
