Sweden might not dominate the game vs Mexico. They lost on corners 3-77, total shots (13-19) and ball possession (35-65), but they were definitely the better side of the last world cup game in Ekaterinburg. They indeed showed Mexico how to use the chances.

And careless Latin Americans could have suffered a hard blow but for sensational Koreans who put Germany to the last place in Kazan.

It was the second half that proved to be decisive. First Ludwi Augustinsson netted an opener in 50th minute. Then Andreas Granqvist proved himself again to be the penalty king by converting a spot-kick in 62nd minute. And in 74th everything was over when Edson Alvarez put an unlucky own goal in.

Sweden managed to top a very difficult group after they derailed the Netherlands in qualification and Italy in play-offs. Which proves they are a team of great abilities even though Zlatan Ibrahimovic retired.
