Swansea City duo Martin Olsson and Kristoffer Nordfeldt are celebrating after Sweden reached the World Cup quarter-finals.

Olsson made his first appearance of the tournament as the Swedes beat Switzerland 1-0 in their round of 16 clash this afternoon.

The Swans left-back came on for the final eight minutes as Sweden held on to the lead given to them midway through the second half by Emil Forsberg.

The Swiss had Michael Lang sent off in stoppage time after he pushed Olsson when he was through on goal.

Nordfeldt, meantime, was an unused substitute, as he has been in each of his nation's games so far in Russia.
