KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - England eliminated Sweden from the European Championship on Friday after Theo Walcott scored one goal and set up another for an entertaining come-from-behind 3-2 win.
Walcott came on as a substitute and made it 2-2 in the 64th minute and then set up Danny Welbeck for the winner in the 78th as England earned its first win over Sweden in a competitive game in eight tries. Andy Carroll had given England the halftime lead with a powerful header in the 23rd but Sweden fought back through an own-goal by Glen Johnson and a header by Olof Mellberg.
England now only needs a draw against Ukraine in its last game to advance to the quarterfinals.
