It's been a bit of a back and forth match between the Netherlands and Sweden in Stockholm. The Dutch don't have much to play for save maintaining a 100% qualifying record - they've got first place completely sewn up. Sweden, however are in a rather more interesting situation: No matter what, they finish second, but a win here would mean that they qualify automatically rather than going into the playoffs, and so they're really going for it here.
Scoring a 14th minute goal is a good way to get things off on the correct foot, and it was midfielder Kim Kallstrom who got the Swedes off to the perfect start, hammering a 25-yard shot past Michel Vorm to give the hosts a 1-0 lead. That wouldn't last long, however - a Klaas-Jan Huntelaar header had drawn Holland level, and in general the visitors have had the better of things. That's hardly a surprise considering the quality the Netherlands have to offer, but it sure isn't a good sign for Sweden's hopes of automatic qualification. It's 1-1 at the half.
