Sweden 2 England 3: Welbeck to the rescue to leave Hodgson's men in driving seat
20:52 GMT, 15 June 2012
Danny Welbeck's sublime finish put England on the path towards the knockout stages in a rollercoaster match at Euro 2012.
The striker guided home Theo Walcott's cross with a skilful turn in the 78th minute to seal victory for Roy Hodgson's men.
It leaves them level in top spot on four points with France in Group D ahead of Tuesday's decider with the Ukraine, which they must not lose. Sweden, meanwhile, are now out.
Andy Carroll had earlier put England into a first-half lead with a superb header. Olof Mellberg then hit a quickfire double after the break before Theo Walcott drew England level at 2-2.
