That's it, full time. Spain ended up winning by a comfortable margin but their approach to the game does tend to get its best effects later in the game. They weren't faultless, but they were confident and competent. Sweden now face a battle to come second in Group F.
Three minutes of added time indicated.
Spain's dominance told in the end, and it could be a credit to their exacting approach, but they did ride their luck earlier on in the half at 0-0.
- OffIñigo MartínezSpain
- OnDiego LlorenteSpain
GOAL! Spain 3-0 Sweden. Oyarzabal - He receives a pass on the edge of the box, cuts onto his left and drills in a low curling shot to make it three.
PENALTY! Helander trips Morata with a rough challenge inside the box as the striker steamed forward.
Spain ping the ball out of reach of the opposition.
- OffSebastian LarssonSweden
- OnAlexander IsakSweden
Isak on for Larsson.
Sweden are being hounded in possesssion near their penalty area, with Spain looking to force an error.
The Swedish mamagement team must have little faith in their subs. They've not made a change in the second half after being demonstrably locked into defeat.
Marcus Berg can't force a shot on goal after a rare moment of Sweden pressing high up the pitch.
- OnMikel OyarzabalSpain
Oyarzabal on for Rodrigo.
We're entering the last 20 minutes of normal time now.

Here's Morata for Spain.
- Goal by penaltySergio RamosSpain
GOAL! Spain 1-0 Sweden. Ramos scores - He slows his run up, waits for Olsen to shift to his left and blasts the ball to the left- hand side of the goal.
PENALTY! Asensio fires in a cross that Larsson sticks up an arm to block. Obvious.
Quaison races onto a short pass down the middle and from the edge of the box he rifles a shot at goal that Kepa is quick to pluck out of the air. A reminder for Spain that they need to be more ruthless.
This game is quite challenging, because for all the possessional and territorial dominance, not much of note has happened for an hour.
Here's some hardcore analysis as another Spanish corner goes begging.
It's getting a little ridiculous now. They aren't even getting close to the centre circle before they attack again and again. Two crosses from the left are repelled.
Augustinsson has been resolute in defence, and he is on hand to clear again.
Spain have yet another corner. It's whipped back to Isco on the edge of the box, and he fires in a volley that ends up only a couple of yards over the bar.
Robert Moreno is on the sidelines today, with Luis Enrique's absence from the touchline continuing.
Spain are moving the ball at a fair clip now, trying to open up the Swedish defence.
Right - at what point do Spain start to pull their finger out?

We go again.
- End of 1st Half
That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.
A corner on the left for Spain, Ramos meets it with an overhead kick that sails miles over.
Two minutes or so more to come.
Corner for Spain, but it's headed out and Sweden only have a minute of normal time to survive to reach the halfway point. BASECAMP, as Peter Drury might shout.
I wonder if the players just want to start their holidays at this point. They are palpably waning already.
And there's disquiet about the quality of the players for Spain.
Martinez is caught by Quaison on the left wing, and the Swedish forward comes back to yank him up to standing. There is very little needle in this game.
Fabian has another punt, but it rises as it approaches goal and sails over.
There is some anger about that disallowed goal.
Seb Larsson pelts down the right wing and sends in a cross that is headed away.
It is, though, almost constant pressure from the Spanish side now with Sweden pinned right back,
With a third of the match gone, the scores are level and Sweden appear to have weathered the worst of the storm that Spain have conjured up so far.
- OffViktor ClaessonSweden
- OnJakob JohanssonSweden
Johansson is on for the injured Claesson.
Play is yet to restart.
- Yellow cardJordi AlbaSpain
Claesson is down, in pain, and receiving treatment. He was striding forward before Alba tugged his shirt and forced the player to catch his foot in the turf. That looks very painful, potentially serious.
Sergio Ramos' neatly shaped beard makes him look just like Jimmy Hill.
Quaison concedes a foul on the halfway line, allowing Spain to keep the pressure on.
Olsen pulled off two more important saves a moment earlier. He beat away a curling, low shot from Isco, and also leapt to his right to tip away Ramos' header towards the top corner.
GOAL! NO! Spain take a short corner and move the ball swiftly from right to the middle of the pitch. It's chipped into the box for Rodrigo to tap into an empty net from an Alba pass, but it's ruled offside.
Fabian makes room for a shot as he cuts onto his right foot, just outside the box, and Olsen leaps to his left to tip the ball away for a corner.
A poor clearance from Kepa chips the ball out of play and Sweden have a throw high up on the left. Ramos wins it on the touchline and then wins a free kick.
Carvajal floats a tempting ball into the box for Rodrigo to chase to the near post, but he's flagged offside.
Jansson slides towards goal to cut out a cross and concedes a corner. Nothing comes of it, until the ball is played back into the box into the direction of Ramos at the back post, but he can't reach the ball with his lunge.
Hard to disagree with a statement of fact like this.
Sweden break promptly from defence down the left, but Ramos is on hand to rob the ball with a well timed interception.
Quaison chips the ball pointlessly in the box, and not much happens because the whole passage was a waste of effort.
Now it's Sweden's time to sit on the ball in defence.
Plenty of Spanish posssession so far, with Sweden seemingly content to drop back and defend for now.
- 1st Half
The match gets underway.
I'm predicting a 6-0 win for Spain tonight, because why not?

This is also - as you are no doubt aware - something of a health-off.
The big news is, of course, that David de Gea is not in goal for Spain. He had a markedly disappointing season with Manchester United, and for once he had to share some of the blame. Kepa might have made a plonker of himself in the League Cup final, but was otherwise an impressive performer for Chelsea.
Sweden are undefeated too, with two wins and a draw putting them on seven points. The top two sides will qualify for the main event next summer.
Whoever wins tonight will move into the top spot of Group F. Spain have won all three of their games so far, putting them on nine points.
