Latvia 0-1 Sweden: Nervy Swedes hang on

RIGA, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Sweden beat Latvia 1-0 in their opening Euro 2008 Group F qualifier on Saturday with Kim Kallstrom scoring the only goal of a tightly contested match.

Kallstrom was left unmarked and unchallenged on the edge of

the penalty area after 39 minutes to wrong-foot goalkeeper

Aleksandrs Kolinko to score what proved to be the winner.

Latvia chased the equaliser throughout the second half and

created a series of opportunities, but failed to capitalize on

any of them.

Swedish goalkeeper Rami Shaaban was forced to make several

spectacular saves for Sweden to notch up three points for the win

Iceland, Denmark, Spain, Liechtenstein and Luxemburg

complete the group.
