Sweden qualified with ease in a 5-0 win over Portugal

SHEFFIELD, England (AP) —The Swiss could have qualified with an upset win and nearly took the lead soon after Reuteler’s goal, but Coumba Sow fired one shot at the goalkeeper and then a second attempt against the post.

Sweden qualified top of the group after two goals just before halftime took the fight out of Portugal.

Filippa Angeldal opened the scoring in the 21st and made it 2-0 in the 45th before an own-goal for the third as the ball deflected in off Carole Costa’s head at a corner.

Captain Kosovare Asllani scored a 54th-minute penalty and Stina Blackstenius further extended Sweden’s lead in stoppage time.
