    Thanks Asa, Seb and JP :o)

    Maybe I’ll have a look at your link, Seb.

    Well, England always has good start in their games, it’s a tradition (men and women)….

    I always thought that Sweden would be one of the three favourites with Germany and France, having the advantage to play at home. But, at the same time, this advantage can become a disadvantage in the knock-out stage with the high pressure (we saw that with Germany in 2011 and G-B in 2012). Particualrly if they play a team which has nothing to lose, as, for instance, Netherlands or Norway in SF (as was Japan in 2011).

    As for England, it’s a bit irritating to see they have a good potential which is so often spoilt. I think that if they meet Germany in QF, they won’t have a single chance.

    @Gromit To be honest I saw big chunks of both periods thanks to my android but I did not see the game entirely as I was going back home, switching between buses, metros and train. The tactical superiority of Sweden, Schellin being on fire, England’s mistakes that led to the Swedes’ goals seemed pretty obvious to me though. I also noticed the England GK making several crucial saves.

    In the first five min, Sweden had about 3 scoring oppurtunites, after those five minutes, England got into the game, and won some balls higher up on the pitch. It was during this spell, which lasted about 15-20 min that England looked Ok. After that Sweden took over again, and looked like the first few minutes of the first half, and eventually equalized and went ahead. The second half was very one-sided, with only 2 chances as I can tell for the English side. The Swedes didn’t have the margins on their side today, and could have won with 3-4 more goals.
