Sweden reach Euro 2016

MARTIN Olsson featured as a late substitute for Sweden as they secured their place at Euro 2016 with a 2-2 draw in Denmark on Tuesday.  

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's brace put the away side firmly in control, with Sweden eventually progressing to next summer's tournament via a 4-3 aggregate victory.

That was despite Denmark's valiant rally on the night, which saw the hosts net twice in the final ten minutes as they threatened a dramatic fightback.

The outcome means Olsson becomes the fourth Norwich City player to reach Euro 2016, following on from Kyle Lafferty, Robbie Brady and Wes Hoolahan.

Earlier in the day, Sebastien Bassong was an unused substitute for Cameroon's 0-0 draw with Niger in 2018 World Cup Qualifying.

A 3-0 aggregate win means Cameroon progress to the group stages of the African section as they continue their bid to reach the Finals in Russia.

Finally, Louis Thompson remained on the bench for Wales Under-21s' 1-1 draw with ten-man Romania in 2017 European Championship Qualifying.
