The team definitely deserved the victory. But the issue i have with them is their ability to continue in a winning form.
Congrats to Sweden.

Yeah. Well deserved. Think they have problems with scoring has their first game ended scoreless and today via a penalty. Today win might however have given them a little confidence going forward

After the goaless 90 minutes in their first group match against Spain,they came out today knowing fully well that a victory against the solvakia will help them in securing their progress into the next stage and definitely they lift up to that expectation by edging out the sloviaka national team by a lone gaol.

Yeah. They showed they really needed this match as they went all in. Great their efforts was rewarded at the end.

Now they have one more task of securing qualification. Hope they get the much needed result against Poland come Wednesday next week
