England 3-2 Sweden

England go one-up. Check. England can't defend one-goal lead. Check. England go behind after being ahead. Check. England score two stunning goals to come from behind and beat a nation they've never beaten before in a tournament. Ah, er... check your brain, fella-me-lad.

But no. It really happened. England sent Sweden crashing out of the tournament with a comeback the like of which England just don't do. We don't do volleys from outside the area, Mr Walcott. And Mr Welbeck, what was that audacious flick into the net all about? How very un-English!

It also appears we don't mark people called Mellberg, but to moan would be churlish. A great win.

Bring on Ukraine.
