Britain's Saturday newspapers hailed Danny Welbeck's late strike that handed England a 3-2 victory over Sweden.

The victory in Kiev -- from 2-1 down -- means Roy Hodgson's team only need a point from their game against hosts Ukraine.

Welbeck to the rescue to leave Hodgson's men in driving seat", said the Daily Mail.

"The Sun came up with the headline "Flick in Kiev".

The Guardian asked: "Who said Roy Hodgson's England don't do excitement?

"That was one of the most entertaining matches of the tournament so far, full of moments of genius and ineptitude in equal measure."

The Independent said: "There was something fragile about this survival. England are hanging on, which is something to say at the end of a night that threatened to go quite horribly wrong."
