It's all over. Great strength of character by the England team who were galvanised by the introduction of Theo Walcott in the second half.
The result means Sweden are out of the competition and England now need just a point against Ukraine next week to progress
Sweden 2-3 England.
93'—Surely that's it as Ibrahimovic heads one into the stands. AND IT IS!
England caught Sweden on the counter and Walcott chipped a cross to the back post for the onrushing Gerrard.
Gerrard makes a volleyed contact but Isaksson makes another superb save. That should have been game over for Sweden.
90'—SHOT AND OVER
Gerrard had a free-kick from around 30 yards but blasts it into the stands. Perhaps he was timewasting as four minutes of added time are announced.
Welbeck leaves the field to be replaced by Oxlade-Chamberlain.
87'—Hart punches the corner clear and England escape for now.
86'—Carroll makes a huge clearing header as Sweden punted a ball into the box from deep.
Sweden have won a corner now though.
85'—Walcott has been an inspired substitution by Hodgson and has completely turned this game on it's head.
84'—It's all a question of whether England can hold on here now. They have been the better team on the whole but Sweden can't afford to lose this game.
Elmander is off for Rosenberg, and Elm is off for Wilhelmsson.
77'—GOAL GOAL GOAL!
What a rollercoaster ride England are giving us. Walcott was the creator by crossing to the near post. Welbeck somehow get's a backheeled volley on the ball which beats Isaksson. Great invention from Welbeck.
It's now Sweden 2-3 England.
75'—SAVE BY HART
Ibrahimovic hits a strike from distance which was dipping and swerving towards goal. Hart's strong punch cleared the danger.
Sweden are pressing heavily now.
74'—CHANCE FIRED OVER BY SWEDEN
Martin Olsson beat two England players before squaring to Kallstrom who tried the first time effort. Fortunately for Hart he got his angles wrong and fired into the stands.
Olsson was in absolutely acres in that attack and perhaps should have picked somebody else out.
73'—SHOT FIRED OVER
Ashley Young had a chance to test the keeper with that 25 yard free-kick but he fires it too hard and high.
Olsson (Jonas) get's booked for intentionally blocking Hart's kick.
Carroll tries a pop with his right foot but get's underneath it too much. High and wide by the Liverpool striker.
This game could go either way at the moment.
Just learned that Sweden's first goal has been credited as a Glen Johnson own goal.
Lustig is on for Granqvist for Sweden.
63'—GOAL GOAL GOAL
What a game. From the corner resulting from Isaksson's great save, the ball falls to Walcott from 20 yards who slots it home. He's only been on five minutes!
Sweden 2-2 England.
63'—CHANCE AND SAVE
Isaksson makes a great save from a Terry header from six yards. Great reflexes by the keeper.
61'—SUBSTITUTION AND YELLOW CARD
Milner has gone off for Theo Walcott as Mellberg receives a yellow card.
61'—England are all over the place here. From a corner, Sweden counter-attack with Johnson making a last ditch challenge to stop Ibrahimovic having a clean strike at goal.
58'—GOAL GOAL GOAL
Would you believe it. Mellberg again!
Milner's foul led to the free-kick which was lofted into the box. Nobody was marking Mellberg who heads past Joe Hart.
Sweden 2-1 England
Milner picks up the first booking of the game after a tackle from behind on Olsson.
Kallstrom plays a neat pass inside Johnson to Rasmus Elm. Johnson is at full stretch to make the challenge.
A little harder and Elm would surely have scored. Nervy times for England.
