World Cup: Sweden win again (now with video highlights)!

Sensation on sensation! The games have just finished in Stockholm and the news is that Sweden have won again - building on their shock win over Italy on Sunday with and even more remarkable win over higher ranked Spain today.

No detailed reports yet but aA- in sharp contrast to the other games. 3-3 at half time, Sweden scored the game's only try in the second half to win 11-6. The following video includes all the main Swedish scores, plus some pretty determined tackling:

Elsewhere in Group B Italy recovered from the weekend defeat to beat Germany 47-0, and in Group A Scotland beat Belgium "only" 71-0 while Netherlands disposed of Russia 34-0 - so its winner takes all between those two on Saturday.

But the headlines are with the hosts. Sweden need only defeat Germany to qualify for the finals in London next year - an eventuality that no one outside the Swedish camp considered remotely possible only four days ago...
