Sweden secured their place in the last 16 of the Women's World Cup after beating Thailand in Nice.

The Swedes followed up their opening win over Chile with a comfortable victory against Thailand, who were thrashed 13-0 by the USA in their first Group F match.

Linda Sembrant, Kosovare Asllani and Fridolina Rolfo scored before half-time and Lina Hurtig headed in a fourth nine minutes before the end.

Thai skipper Kanjana Sung-Ngoen struck a late consolation before Elin Rubensson converted a stoppage-time penalty for Sweden.

Sembrant headed the Scandinavians into a sixth-minute lead from a free-kick after poor Thailand defending and Asllani produced neat footwork to slide home the second in the 19th minute.

Asllani and Magdalena Eriksson wasted further chances but Rolfo's shot shortly before the interval made it 3-0 after proving too powerful for Thailand goalkeeper Waraporn Boonsing.

Sweden dominated the second period and Hurtig's towering header made it 4-0 before Thailand produced one of the moments of the tournament.

Sung-Ngoen broke clear down the right and calmly finished inside the near post to the delight of team-mates and staff, some of whom shed tears of joy.

Rubensson had the last word for Sweden though, crashing home an unstoppable penalty in the sixth minute of added time after Natthakarn Chinwong had handled in the box.
