Sweden Leave it Even Later

Sweden waited until the 89th minute to finally break the ice and score their first goal of the World Cup. Luckily for them, that was all they needed to get past Paraguay 1-0.

The Swedes have looked like they were about to score constantly for two matches now, but had to wait 179 minutes before they finally managed it. A Freddie Ljungberg header eventually found the back of the net and Sweden was able to breathe again.

Their offense is too potent to have those sorts of problems for long. England may be in for a goal-fest when they meet next week, even though all either team really needs is a draw.
