The first half was cool. But in the 35th minute Zlatan stepped forward.
Assist by Zlatan
Mikael Lustig sent the ball into the penalty area. Zlatan brought the ball with him and passed to Viktor Claesson in front of goal. The outsider threw in 1-0 from close range.
Sweden dominated, as expected, ball possession. But it took just over halfway into the first half before Sweden got a really hot goal chance.
It was Sebastian Larsson who lifted the ball to Claesson. He nodded the ball down to Alexander Isak who pulled to direct, but the goalkeeper saved.
Good saves by Nordfeldt
Before that, Georgia had had two good goal chances. Goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt had saved a free kick and Mikael Lustig had steered a dangerous entry from the edge.
The second half was poor chance. But Georgia had an excellent chance with ten minutes left of regular time. Nordfeldt, however, was quickly down and saved with his right arm.
It was 84 minutes for Zlatan, who was replaced by Robin Quaison.
Zlatan and Isak started in the attack, and it seemed that they did not train much together. Isak, however, stood for a good effort with good defensive work and many runs.
