Italy punched their ticket to the knockout stage with another solid defensive effort and a goal in the 88th minute to defeat Sweden, 1-0.
It may not have been the most entertaining match for fans to witness, but that will hardly matter in the end to Italy, who won with their typical brand of football. Sweden dominated possession in the first half but could not do much in the creativity department and the Italians looked comfortable defending from start to finish. They began to create some chances in the second half, including a volley by Graziano Pelle that went over the bar and Marco Parolo struck the bar after being set up beautifully by Emanuele Giaccherini. The goal came from Eder, who split the Sweden defense and fired a low shot into the far corner. Giaccherini may have been an afterthought for Sunderland but he has been vital to Italy's cause in the Euros thus far and perhaps the most valuable fantasy option in the tournament. Jun 17 - 1:05 PM
