A scorching day at S.C. Internacional RS Arena, where 36000 spectators were in place for today's match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Rafique Sirimou and Nikola Hosnedl. The match took place on neutral ground. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Scotland will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Jameson - Ruthven, Kaya, Lenny - Dow, Graham, MacCasland, MacConochie, MacNuir - Sim, Weir.

Our studio analysts were correct. Sverige has taken the field in a 3-4-3 alignment. Lineup: Andreasson - Alexandersson, Nordling, Persson - Sörensson, Sandander, Stensson, Persson - Thorstensson, Sedström, Hartborg.

Scotland mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their outstanding ability to attack in the middle. After 6 minutes, Sverige's Anders Stensson made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. The visitors' Joakim Sandander took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 7 minutes into the match. 0 - 2 for Sverige. Some fine one-twos on the left led to a Sverige goal with 8 minutes gone, making it 0 - 3. Fredrik Sörensson was noted down as the scorer. Anders Persson raced down the wing after 9 minutes and managed to get through the defense, but he lost his footing and sent the cross out for a throw-in. Some fine one-twos on the left led to a Sverige goal with 11 minutes gone, making it 0 - 4. Fredrik Sörensson was noted down as the scorer. After 34 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Anders Stensson who increased Sverige's lead to 0 - 5. By now, the players of Sverige felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 5. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Sverige had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The visitors' Joakim Sandander took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 51 minutes into the match. 0 - 6 for Sverige. The visitors' Martin Hartborg took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 72 minutes into the match. 0 - 7 for Sverige. The visitors' Anders Stensson took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 78 minutes into the match. 0 - 8 for Sverige. He'd already scored two, and with the third, Anders Stensson had a hattrick! Sverige's Andreas Alexandersson missed a penalty 83 minutes into the match. He swung his leg too early, producing a weak shot that the keeper could collect at his own leisure. Sverige's Ulf Nordling made it through the home team's defense on the right hand side 85 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded net when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. Sverige did a good job holding on to the ball, with 54 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

Scotland's best player was Sean Jameson. Good thing Richard MacNuir isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Sverige's best player was Johan Andreasson. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Mats Persson today. The match ends 0 - 8.
