    Background: This ratch did not draw the great crowds probably because Belgium is already eliminated in this pool with Sweden and Switzerland. The Swedes are playing in light shirt (yellow). Belgium won the toss and the Swedes launch the first attack. This entire first time sees a slight predominance of the Belgian team with a few Swedish attacks which are invariably broken in the off-side trap. The second time begins also not very interesting with Belgium in the attack. The last half hour is more animated and it is finally Sweden, against all logic who scores two goals. Relaxed, they will dominate the last ten minutes of the match.
