Pontus Jansson played all 90 minutes in Sweden’s 1-1 draw with Slovakia in a friendly match played yesterday.

Sweden had gotten a second half lead, but was unable to hold on for a win, as Slovakia’s Albert Rusnák scored a cracking goal to draw the two teams level in the 84th minute.

All’s well that ends well, however, as neither team suffered any long-term injuries and everyone went home happy.

On to the links.
