euro champions on a roll
Henrik Larsson opened scoring for Sweden with a spectacular volley but two goals by Sidney Govou helped France come from behind and beat the hosts three-two in Gothenburg. The game marked the 50th anniversary of the Sweden World Cup. Elsewhere, a scrappy injury time finish by Joe Cole salvaged a 2-2 draw for England against the Czech Republic at the Wembley. Substitute Xabi Alonso scored twice as Vicente del Bosque celebrated his first game in charge of Spain with a 3-0 win in Denmark.
