Full-time: Spain are through to next year's World Cup! Sweden threw everything they had at the hosts but La Roja defended resiliently and rode their luck at times, securing all three points at the death courtesy of substitute Alvaro Morata's cool finish. Sweden now have an agonising wait to discover their opponents in the playoffs!

Ibrahimovic... no! He's left unmarked at the far post but fluffs his lines completely! He appears to take his frustration out on Azpilicueta moments later as he clatters into the Spain full-back as Sweden prepare to take a corner. The referee produces the yellow card, but in truth Zlatan is fortunate it's only a booking. Spain deal with the set-piece when it's eventually taken.

GOAL! Spain 1-0 Sweden (Alvaro Morata): That settles it, Spain are going to Qatar! Olmo's fine strike hits the post but Morata is in the right place at the right time to control and slot home the winner!

Save! Finally, Spain register a shot on target - their first of the game! Morata has space to run into and should perhaps do better as his shot is straight down the throat of Olsen, who pushes it away.

Ibrahimovic is the target as Sweden win a free-kick. The veteran flicks his header on but Spain clear.

Spain are just happy now to keep a hold of the ball in an attempt to run the clock down.

Into the last 10 minutes. It's now or never for Sweden.

Sweden fail to clear their lines from the resulting free-kick - but fear not, Morata lifts the ball out of the stadium with a wild first-time shot.

Krafth goes into the book for a poor challenge on Olmo.

Alba overcooks his cross and Sweden have a goal-kick. He has had a largely poor game tonight.

Olmo loses his footing as he bursts into the penalty area. The loose ball falls kindly for Rodrigo whose shot is blocked by Augustinsson.

Zlatan is now warming up and has just received instruction from Andersson. He'll have less than 20 minutes to make a difference.
69'
The stadium is now strangely quiet - you can sense the supporters are growing increasingly anxious the longer it stays 0-0. Remember, it's a winner takes all, so if Sweden can nick a goal they'll be going to Qatar, consigning Spain to the playoffs.
