Result: Sweden 1-1 Netherlands
Date: 06 September 2016
Venue: Friends Arena
Wesley Sneijder's second-half strike helped the Netherlands clinch a point, as they drew 1-1 with Sweden in their 2018 World Cup qualifier.
The Dutch got off to a promising start and should have been in front after 14 minutes, but Davy Klaassen failed to beat Robin Olsen from point-blank range.
The Swedes should have had a goal of their own a few moments later, but Jeroen Zoet was on hand with a superb low save to keep out Emil Forsberg's effort from 25-yards out.
Despite the visitors seeing more of the ball, Sweden broke the deadlock after 43 minutes as Kevin Strootman was dispossessed by Marcus Berg, who sent a delightful chip over Zoet.
The Netherlands struggled after the break and nearly saw the hosts double their advantage, but Virgil Van Dijk popped up with a block to deny Berg a certain goal from point-blank range.
However, Danny Blind's charges leveled matters in the 67th minute when Sneijder slotted home from close range, after Daryl Janmaat's initial strike was saved.
The visitors pushed for a winner in the closing stages and should have taken the lead after 85 minutes but Vincent Janssen failed to beat Olsen in a one-on-one situation.
The Dutch had the ball in the back of the net in stoppage time thanks to Bas Dost's header, however the goal was ruled for a foul in the build-up.
That proved to be the final chance of the game, as both nations were forced to earn a share of the spoils.
