Sweden centre-half Daniel Majstorovic's 22nd-minute own goal from a Gareth Barry header was England's 2,000th goal and, surprisingly, 'own goals' now lie fourth in the all-time scoring list for the national team with 43 - behind Bobby Charlton, Gary Lineker and Jimmy Greaves.
It was also the first win over Sweden since 1968.
But now is no time for historical landmarks with the next big tournament just seven months away.
Terry added: "It's been far too long since we beat Sweden. But over the two games I thought we were excellent.
"We kept two clean sheets and there were some promising performances from the younger players.
"The manager made a lot of changes and it was important the players who came in adapted really quickly, which they did."
