Sweden and Belgium will both go into the European Championships with some added confidence following wins in their final warm up games this evening.

Ireland's first Group E opponents Sweden ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Wales at home, ending their six game win-less streak. 

Manchester United linked Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a helping hand in Sweden's first goal, winning possession on the halfway line before teeing up Emil Forsberg to slot home. 

Mikael Lustig doubled the lead following a goalmouth scramble before Celta Vigo striker John Guidetti wrapped up the win with a half-volley. 

Belgium, on the other hand, were made to sweat at home to Norway, with strikes from Eden Hazard and Laurent Ciman getting them out of jail. 

Romelu Lukaku put De Rode Duivels in front after three minutes, but Bournemouth striker Joshue King leveled before Veton Berisha put the Norwegians in front.
