Sweden Keeps World Cup Hopes Alive

Sweden kept its hopes alive for next summer’s soccer World Cup in South Africa, narrowly beating Malta away 1-0.

For most of the match it seemed as if Malta would hold the Swedes to a tie. The score came as an own goal in the 81st minute, after a kick from Marcus Berg.

Sweden managed to eke out a similar narrow victory away against Hungary on Wednesday, through a last second goal by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
