They are the sixth team to qualify, behind Belgium, Italy, Russia, Ukraine and Poland.

Marcus Berg sent Sweden ahead in the Group F clash but Robert Moreno’s side battled their way back to get a point, which is enough to see them lock in their appearance next summer.

Gerard Moreno and Rodrigo both came close in the first half but Robin Olsen kept them out, while David de Gea was busy at the other end.

The Man United keeper made a fine double save after the break but the second rebound was headed home by Marcus Berg to put Sweden ahead.

Not long after the stopper was forced off injured for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Spain battled their way back to draw when Rodrigo turned home from close range and sealed the three-time winners’ appearance at the ball.
