Sweden's Robin Olsen pulls off super save in goalless draw with Russia

Russia were unable to find a break down a determined Swedish back line as the spoils were shared at Kaliningrad Stadium.

Sweden goalkeeper Robin Olsen pulled off a world-class save as his side held Russia to a 0-0 draw in their Nations League B, Group 2 clash in Kaliningrad on Thursday.

Both teams exited this year's World Cup at the quarterfinal stage and Sweden once again showcased the defensive stability that has made them so hard to beat under coach Janne Andersson.

The hosts failed to convert their dominance of possession into shots on target until 10 minutes from full-time, when Olsen had to make a superb, acrobatic save to keep out a fearsome effort from Daler Kuzyaev.

That was the closest either side came to breaking the deadlock and the result leaves Russia top of the group on four points after two games.

Russia face second-placed Turkey, who are a point adrift, on Sunday, with the Swedes bottom on one point ahead of their friendly with Slovakia on Tuesday.
