For all the coverage of the build-up to the football match between Sweden and England on Wednesday night, anyone would have thought that the game actually mattered.

It didn't, but that didn't stop Expressen from drooling over the second-half goal from "the man who can do what he likes with a football", Zlatan Ibrahimovic. "It was artistic - not as acrobatic as the one he scored for Ajax on Sunday, but just as delicious."

Other than that, it was a dull game, only lightly spiced up by the oft-repeated fact that Sweden haven't lost to England since 1968. England's Swedish manager, Sven-Göran Eriksson, was asked after the game why this is. "I don't know," he replied. "I really don't know."

Wise words from a man who is paid £4 million a year to know just that sort of thing.
