EURO 2012 : Sweden 2-3 England - a cracker of a game

Danny Welbeck grabbed the winner as England came from behind to beat Sweden in a dramatic Group D game.
England went ahead in the first half when Andy Carroll powered in a header from Steven Gerrard's cross.

After the break Sweden came roaring back and defender Olof Mellberg slid in a shot that bounced in off Glen Johnson to equalise and 10 minutes later put Sweden 2-1 ahead with a header from a curling free-kick.

But England bounced back when substitute Theo Walcott's swerving 25-yard strike completely deceived Swedish goalkeeper Isaksson, and England victory was complete when Walcott crossed for Welbeck to flick in a stylish winner.

Sweden 2 (Mellbery 49, 59)
England 3 (Carroll 23, Walcott 64, Welbeck 78)
