Ireland dominated and had the better chances but an own goal by Clark means Sweden go back with a point despite not having a shot on target the entire game.

Sweden vs Ireland: As it happened

FULL TIME:  And that’s it from the Stade de France.  It finishes 1-1 between the two sides in Paris.

91 minutes: 3 minutes added on.

89 minutes: Seconds remaining, Sweden haven’t had a shot on target this game. Ireland with the possession.

78 minutes: Change for Sweden: On comes Robbie Keane and off goes goalscorer Wesley Hoolahan

71 minutes: GOALL!! Sweden equalise with an unfortunate own goal by Clark. Ibrahimovich at the heart of things as he cuts inside on the line and chips in a cross which the Irish player can’t get away but heads into his own goal!

66 minutes: Changes since the goal:

For Sweden: Marcus Berg went off for  John Guidetti

For Ireland: Jonathan Walters went off for James McClean

58 minutes: At Euro 2012, Ireland lost all three of their group stage matches to go out. Now they’re half an hour away from a win. But half an hour a lot of time in football.

47 minutes: GOAL!!!! Ireland finally get the goal they deserved. Seamus Coleman cuts in from the right and Wesley Hoolahan with a perfectly struck half volley on the bounce and he’s beaten Isaksson. 1-0 to Ireland!

HALF TIME: It is 0-0 at Stade de France with Ireland grabbing the majority of chances. They’ve hit the woodwork and enjoyed the better of the chances.

45 minutes: Lustig goes off for Sweden. On comes Erik Johansson.

40 minutes: And John O’Shea very close to getting the first goal for Ireland. Late by a second.. or less!

32 minutes: Ireland’s Hendrick hits the crossbar! Ireland making the most of their early momentum but unable to break the deadlock.
