The Swedes hold the lead and look set for a place in the quarter-finals with 10 minutes remaining.

DRAMA as Sweden thanks to Forsberg clear the ball off the line.

Still goalless with 5 minutes remaining in the first-half.
22' Sweden 0-0 Switzerland
Few clear chances created in the opening stages with the two sides cancelling each other out so far.
13' Xherdan Shaqiri hits an a dangerous in-swinger from the right but his cross is slightly over-hit.
He gets a thumbs-up though for the idea.
12' Sweden 0-0 Switzerland
Marcus Berg has gone closest to opening the scoring in the opening stages for Sweden after a defensive lapse by the Swiss.
7' Berg is played in behind the Swiss defence but lashes a shot wide.
Switzerland make a hash of trying to play out of the back and Berg nearly makes them pay.
Forberg comes off to a rousing cheer. He is replaced by Olsson in a very defensive switch. Elsewhere, Lustig is struggling and is replaced by Krafth.
Embolo wins a header at the far post from Shaqiri's corner but Forsberg blocks it on the line and Granqvist clears the loose ball.
Embolo shows his enterprise as he easily skips past Lustig. He dwells on the ball in the box though and Lustig gets back to clear for a corner.
Shaqiri re-injects the ball in towards Akanji after the corner was cleared. The defender stretches but cannot quite get there.
A throw of the dice for Switzerland comes in the form of a double change, Embolo and Seferovic comes on for Dzemaili and Zuber. Two recognised strikers up front for Switzerland now.
A poor corner by Rodriguez is nodded away by the Swedish captain, Granqvist.
Ekdal shows great feet to wriggle past Xhaka but he cannot keep his shot from 20 yards down.
GOAL, SWEDEN, FORSBERG! 1-0: He has been the one who has threatened for Sweden and finally he gets his World Cup goal. Forsberg let the ball run across his body on the edge of the box and struck it. It took a wicked deflection and ends up in net.
It has been a messy, stop-start half in truth as fouls have become the order of the day. Shaqiri tries to take it quickly but the referee brings it back.
Forsberg brings out a few flicks on the edge of the box and draws the foul from Behrami. Forsberg dusts himself off to take the free kick but the wall does its job.
Behrami finds himself in the book for a one too many fouls. The latest one was on Forsberg.
Very little happening for both sides at the moment as Sweden look to keep the ball. Switzerland are happy to let them have it and are holding their shape.
There looks to be a problem for Ekdal, he is down clutching his right ankle. He will carry on for now.
Rodriguez has a hit on his less favoured right foot and wins a corner. He walks over to take it himself.
Neat play by Switzerland sends Rodriguez on a foray forward but his cross shot is blocked well by Lindelof.
A clever turn by Forsberg in the centre circle releases him from Xhaka's clutches. He feeds Augustinsson who crosses, the knock down falls to Toivonen who cannot direct his volley on target.
An early free kick is lifted into the box by Augustinsson but Djourou is there to acrobatically clear it toward the touch line.
Switzerland kick us off for this second half. Will we have another half of near misses or could we have another goal fest like the second half of Belgium and Japan last night.
The last action of the half is a Dzemaili foul on Olsen, who had the best chance for Switzerland that flew too high. For Sweden Berg had a shot well saved by Sommer and Ekdal had the chance of the game as his close range volley flew over.
HALF TIME: SWEDEN 0 - 0 SWITZERLAND.
Rodriguez' slide rule pass sends Shaqiri in on the left. His devilish ball is watched by all the Swedish players as it flew across goal out of the reach of his Swiss teammates.
Lustig plays in a gem of a cross toward the back post. Ekdal gets it all wrong and skies his volley from close range. Two great chances for either side now.
Forsberg's free kick flicks off the wall and Sommer watches on anxiously as it passes the right side of the post as far as he is concerned.
Arguably the best chance of the game falls to Dzemaili as Zuber cuts it back to him from the byline. He hits it sweetly but straight over the bar with Olsen struggling.
Sweden are happy to sit deep and allow Switzerland to have the ball. Shaqiri's latest shot is blocked by Augustinsson.
It is Xhaka's turn to let fly from 40 yards out, but it just goes over the crossbar. Decent hit.
Rodriguez tries his luck from what must have been 40 yards out but Olsen is up to the task and gathers.
Immediately after the save the ball looked to strike a Swiss player on the arm but it is deemed to be ball to hand.
Sensational glove work by Sommer as Berg's volleyed effort looked destined for the far corner. He dived to his right to deny the striker the opening goal of this match.
A delicious cross is put in by Lang but this time Zuber cannot get there ahead of Lustig. The Swiss fullbacks are getting really high up the pitch.
A clever free kick allows Berg to head across goal but Sommer is out quickly to collect and start a counter. Shaqiri's inswinger is met by Zuber but his header is over the bar.
A foul on Xhaka allows Switzerland to set up again who have controlled the last ten minutes of this game. No notable chances have been created by them yet.
Rodriguez gets to this one and fizzes in a low cross but Lindelof takes no risks as he puts it out for a throw in.
Switzerland are growing into the game after a very slow start. Xhaka sends one of his trademark cross field balls toward Rodriguez but the veteran left back cannot get there.
Shaqiri's cross is just too high for Drmic. The Swiss seem to be looking to Shaqiri to make things happen for them.
Shaqiri's clever long ball nearly catches the Swedish centre backs out as Dzemaili sprints in behind. Olson rushes out to smother however.
An awful goal kick by Sommer is picked up by Ekdal who feeds Berg. The strikers shot is blocked and Ekdal's volley from the rebound is smashed high over the bar.
Sweden find a way through via a lofted pass by Toivonen but Berg snatches at the chance and blasts it into the stands.
Sweden break after a good tackle by Lustig. The ball makes it all the way to Forsberg on the left wing but the extremely talented Leipzig midfielder over hits his pass.
A few robust tackles in midfield anger the referee. He has given several free kicks already. Nothing in dangerous territory however.
Shaqiri has a pop from 30 yards to get the statisticians working but it is well wide of goal.
Skomina's whistle blows to get us underway in St Petersburg.
Switzerland XI: Sommer, Lang, Djourou, Akanji, Rodriguez, Behrami, Xhaka, Shaqiri, Dzemaili, Zuber, Drmic.
Sweden XI: Olsen, Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson, Claesson, Svensson, Ekdal, Forsberg, Berg, Toivonen.
Switzerland finished second in their group behind Brazil and make four changes after their two all draw with Costa Rica. Key defenders Lichtsteiner and Schar picked up suspensions and are replaced by Lang and Djourou. Elsewhere, Embolo and Gavranovic make
Sweden come into the game with confidence after topping their group with an emphatic three nil win over Mexico. With Larsson suspended, Svensson comes in for the Swedes only change.
Hello and welcome to the Krestovsky Stadium for the penultimate last-16 tie between Sweden and Switzerland.
