Sweden 0-0 Portugal: Elmander fluffs lines

STOCKHOLM, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Johan Elmander missed three good first-half chances in Sweden's 0-0 draw with Portugal in World Cup Group One qualifying on Saturday.

The Bolton Wanderers striker went wide in the seventh minute

after excellent work by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was captaining

his country for the first time in the absence of Henrik Larsson.

Twenty minutes later Elmander fired a volley over the

crossbar before he failed to hit the target with a header just

before halftime.

The result gave second-placed Sweden five points from three

games, one ahead of Portugal in third spot. Denmark lead the way

on seven points.

The home side were disciplined and well organised, with

Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo reduced to a peripheral figure

especially in the first half.

The Manchester United player, booed by the crowd for most of

the match, helped set up a scoring opportunity for Hugo Almeida

in the 33rd minute but his effort was saved by keeper Andreas

Isaksson.

The visitors raised their game after halftime and got better

as the match wore on.

Joao Moutinho went narrowly wide in the 52nd minute before

Raul Meireles forced a fine stop from Isaksson.
