Kick-off: 3:00pm local (2:00pm BST) Assistant referees: György Ring (Hungary) Vencel Tóth (Hungary) Fourth official: Clément Turpin (France) Additional assistant referees: Tamás Bognár (Hungary) Ádám Farkas (Hungary) Reserve assistant referee: Nicolas Danos (France) Man of the Match: Éder (Italy) Thanks to a late goal, Italy became the second team to qualify for the knock-out stages of Euro 2016. With an Italian starting line-up with an average age of over 31 years and the Sweden starters accumulating over 650 caps, experience was not in short supply in Toulouse. Creativity was generally lacking though, especially from the Swedes who had now gone through their first two group games without recording a shot on target. The game was settled by a bit of Brazilian-style magic from Brazil-born Eder. 11 of the 35 goals at Euro 2016 had now been scored in the 87th minute or later, compared to ten in the first 45 minutes. Italy were now unbeaten in 12 competitive games under Chelsea-bound Antonio Conte. Sweden had now won only three of the last 16 games at the European Championship finals.
