Victory over France means Swedes land bronze medals.
Sweden recorded a 2-1 victory over France to finish third at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany.
Marie Hammarstrom netted the late winner for Sweden to ensure they came away with some pride following the heartache of failing to reach the Final.
Sweden got off to a dream start when they opened the scoring after 29 minutes. Sara Larsson’s long ball from the back picked out Lotta Schelin who kept all her composure to slide the ball past France keeper Berangere Sapowicz.
That was to be the last piece of action for Sapowicz who was forced to leave the field just seconds later after injuring her ankle.
France forced their way back into the game and grabbed an equaliser on 56 minutes when substitute Elodie Thomis fired the ball past Sweden keeper Hedvig Lindahl.
But it was Sweden who scored the crucial winner on 82 minutes and it was a strike worthy of winning any game.
Hammarstrom received the ball from a short corner and fired an unstoppable shot which sailed into the top corner of the net.
