Christian Eriksen suffered Euro 2016 heartbreak at the hands of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sweden on Tuesday night.

PSG star Ibrahimovic struck twice as the second leg of the Scandinavian derby play-off ended in a 2-2 draw in Copenhagen and therefore Sweden qualified for next summer's finals in France 4-3 on aggregate.

Leading 2-1 from the first leg, Ibrahimovic fired Sweden into a 2-0 lead on the night and 4-1 aggregate advantage before Denmark hit back late. Christian set-up the second of two goals inside the final 10 minutes but it wasn't enough for the Danes, who miss out.

Elsewhere, it was a big day of World Cup qualifying for a number of our players.

As reported yesterday, Heung-Min Son started and scored twice as South Korea beat Laos 5-0 to top Group G in the second round of Asia qualifying for Russia 2018.

Nabil Bentaleb's Algeria and Clinton Njie's Cameroon are both through to the final stage of African qualifying.

The teams were in play-offs to progress to the final round. Clinton played 69 minutes as Cameroon played out a 0-0 draw with Niger to go through 3-0 on aggregate while Nabil played 38 minutes as Algeria hammered Tanzania 7-0 on the night and on aggregate. Both teams now take their place in the final round, five groups of four teams with the winners going through to Russia.

Erik Lamela was an unused substitute as Argentina beat Colombia 1-0 in South America qualifying. Argentina are currently sixth of 10 with the top four through to Russia.

DeAndre Yedlin, currently on loan at Sunderland, completed 90 minutes as the USA drew 0-0 against Trinidad & Tobago in round four of CONCACAF qualifying. USA remain top of Group C with the top two of each group going into the final round, a six-team round-robin where the top three go straight to Russia.

Dele Alli was the toast of Wembley after an emotional friendly against France. Dele was joined by Eric Dier in making their first starts with Harry Kane up front and Hugo Lloris captaining France. Dele smashed home a wonder goal for 1-0 before helping set-up Wayne Rooney early in the second half. Ryan Mason and Kyle Walker were unused substitutes.
