Swansea City duo Martin Olsson and Kristoffer Nordfeldt have seen their World Cup adventure come to an end after Sweden's quarter-final defeat to England.

The Swedes were beaten 2-0 by Gareth Southgate's team, with Harry Maguire and Dele Alli on target.

Olsson came off the bench in the 65th minute of the game, seven minutes after England's second goal, but could not help Sweden turn the contest around.

Nordfeldt, meantime, was once again an unused substitute.

Olsson and Nordfeldt will now be given some time off before they return to Wales.
