  2. CLOSE!

    Sweden 0-0 Thailand

    Twice in the opening three minutes Sweden forward Kosovare Asllani has had efforts on goal now.

    This time her header from eight yards out after getting in between two Thailand defenders from Magdalena Eriksson’s cross is nodded over.

  4. ‘Thailand must stay compact’

    Sweden 0-0 Thailand

    Casey Stoney

    Manchester United Women manager on Radio 5 Live

    It’s crucial Thailand do not concede early.

    They must stay very compact and reduce the amount of space Sweden have to play in.

  5. Post update

    Sweden 0-0 Thailand

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport in Nice

    Just spoken to two Thai
    journalists Wootinon Boonwanit (a Liverpool fan, no less) and Phuwadon
    Eamprapai, who are not expecting another thrashing on the same scale as the
    13-0 defeat by the United States.

    Wootinon is expecting it
    to be 3-1 to Sweden, while Phuwadon reckons it will be 3-0 to Thailand’s
    opponents.

    Both say the players
    have had lots of support from home since that record loss and the message is
    clear: stay strong.

    Sweden 0-0 Thailand

    Sweden making their intent clear, shoot on sight.

    Kosovare Asllani’s shot from the angle of the box following Anna Anvegard’s flick is miscued wide.

  7. ‘Thailand will be more difficult to beat’

    Sweden 0-0 Thailand

    Casey Stoney

    Manchester United Women manager on Radio 5 Live

    Thailand will have learned from the first game and will be much more difficult to beat.

    The score won’t matter to Sweden today. Get the three points, and then it all comes down to that final group game against the USA.

  8. KICK-OFF

    Sweden 0-0 Thailand

    Nice to see you to see you, Nice.

    Away we go.

    Da, da-da, da, daaaa, da.

    Seven Nation Army pumps out over the speakers as the two sets of players enter the pitch at a sun-glazed Allianz Riviera.

  11. Swedes leave it late

  12. ‘Thailand win would be upset of the tournament’

    Sweden v Thailand (14:00 BST)

    Casey Stoney

    Manchester United Women manager on Radio 5 Live

    Sweden are a big stage team, they know how to frustrate teams, but I still see the USA as favourites to win this group with their attacking power.

    If Thailand win today it would probably be the upset of the tournament. I don’t expect that today, but I don’t expect the score to be as big as it was against the USA either.

    The USA take on Chile in the other Group F match at 17:00 BST.

  13. ‘Sweden fan taking over Nice’

    Sweden v Thailand (14:00 BST)

    Over 10,000 Netherlands fans dressed head to toe in orange offered the Dutch incredible support as they booked their place in the last-16 on Saturday, but it appears the Sweden fans are giving them a run for their money in both colour and noise…

  14. Crowd could be less than 10,000

    Sweden v Thailand (14:00 BST)

    Another warm and muggy day in Nice as the players tune up on the pitch. I’m told that the crowd could be up to 11,000 but might be as little as 9,000, which would be the lowest at the World Cup so far.

    Either way, in a 53,000-capacity stadium, that is a lot of empty seats, but those who are here are making a decent noise.

  16. ’13-0 already forgotten’

    Sweden v Thailand (14:00 BST)

    The opening game was one to forget for Thailand, losing 13-0 (THIRTEEN) to the USA in a World Cup record scoreline.

    “Everyone has already forgotten about the first game, what matters is today and the remainder of the group stage,” Thailand midfielder Taneekarn Dangda told Fifa TV.

    Let’s see how they get on.
