FULL-TIME Australia 1-1 Sweden

Australia reach the Last 16 as Group D runners-up. Sweden have a nervous wait to get them a best-third spot. They need South Korea and Spain to draw, or if either of them win for Costa Rica not to have a high scoring draw (2-2 or more) or beat Brazil. If England lose, that will help them. Currently, Sweden are third in the best-third league table.
