EURO2008: Sweden Bettered by Spain

Spain got a Euro 2008 quarter-final spot after David Villa's goal sank Sweden and Russia beat Greece. Spain took the lead after 15 minutes with a clever move that was concluded by Fernando Torres who poked home David Silva's cross. But Sweden levelled when Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent in Fredrick Stoor's cross in the 34th minute. Spain, who could have had a penalty when Johan Elmander barged Silva, were frustrated by Sweden keeper Andreas Isaksson before Villa's dramatic finish.

0-1 Fernando Torres 15"

1-1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic 34"

1-2 David Villa 90"
