England finally defeated Sweden for the first time in 12 attempts, spread over 43 years thanks to Gareth Barry’s deflected first half effort.
England have now enjoyed two 1-0 successes in the space of four days and have now only lost once in 14 games since the 2010 World Cup.
The game was hardly a classic, not helped by a plethora of substitutes from both teams, but Fabio Capello’s troops could have made the scoreline more emphatic if the likes of Jack Rodwell, Phil Jones and Stewart Downing had all taken their chances.
Sweden played some neat football but rarely threatened the England goal until the final minutes.
