Goal!

Belgium 0-2 Italy

  • Graziano Pelle 90+2

Belgium are pushing forward in search of an equaliser, but in doing so they leave themselves exposed at the back and Italy are quick to explot the defensive disarray. A quick break through the middle and the ball reaches Antonio Candreva who pops up a cross for Pelle and the striker volleys home emphatically. Game over.

******************************

Close

Belgium 0-1 Italy

Belgium sweep forward on the counter-atack and Kevin de Bruyne finds Romelu Lukaku unmarked on the edge of the area, but the Everton man chips wide with only Gianluigi Buffon to beat.

Belgium 0-1 Italy

Italy should have doubled their lead. A Marouane Fellaini headed clearance falls to the unmarked Graziano Pelle, but with Coutois out of position, the Southampton striker fails to hit the target with his header from six yards out.

Sweden-equaliser

Goal!

Ireland 1-1 Sweden

  • Ciaran Clark og 71

The Irish defence, which has repelled everything thrown at it, finally cracks and Sweden are level. A neat exchange of passes just inside the Irish penalty area and the ball finally reaches Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose cross is turned into his own goal by the unfortunate Ciaran Clark.

******************************

18:06 BST

Close!

Ireland 1-0 Sweden

Good response from Sweden. Darren Randolph makes a fine save from a deflected clearance but the ball falls to Emil Forsberg who blazes wide from close range. He has to hit the target there, surely.

******************************

18:04 BST

Ireland goal

Goal!

Ireland 1-0 Sweden

  • Wes Hoolahan 47

Ireland are ahead and deservedly so. Seamus Coleman cuts inside from the right before chipping a cross to the far post, where Wes Hoolahan converts with a neat finish on the half volley.

Hits the woodwork!

Ireland 0-0 Sweden

Ireland definitely in the ascendancy in Paris and unlucky not to be ahead. A neat move down the left culminates in Jeff Hendrick playing a one-two with Shane Long before curling a long range effort which canons off the bar.

******************************

17:16 BST

Close!

Ireland 0-0 Sweden

John O’Shea is inches away from giving Ireland the lead. An outswinging corner from the left is flicked on by Ciaran Clark into the path of O’Shea, who slides in but fails to make contact with his outstretched boot. Any touch would have brought a goal.

Goal!

Spain 1-0 Czech Republic

  • Gerard Pique 87

The deadlock is finally broken. Spain refused to be flustered and copntinued with their patient passing game. The ball eventually finds Andres Iniesta, who cuts in from the left to float a cross into the six-yard box where Gerard Pique is on hand to nod home.

******************************

15:26 BST

Close

Spain 0-0 Czech Republic

Chances at both ends. First, Cesc Fabregas has to be alert to hook the ball clear from under the Spanish bar with Tomas Necid lurking. At the other end, Jordi Alba beats the offsisde trap and is found with a perfectly weighted chipped pass from David Silva, but the full–back’s control lets him down and the ball is hacked away for a corner.
