Sweden as expected taken the second spot in the table, just behind Spain. They won against Romania, at home, with a 2-1 scoreline. The team scored two goals by the 40th minute and looked comfortable for the three points. Though the visitors hit back with a goal at the one-hour mark, Sweden prevailed in posting the three points.

Against Norway though, things got out of hand. They tried to make an inspired comeback after recording three goals in a row to make up a deficit of two goals but had to settle for a draw after the hosts, Norway, equalized in the seventh minute of injury time.
