Sweden recorded an excellent 2-0 over Spain to maintain their 100 percent start to Euro 2008 qualifying, but Luis Aragones's side have now suffered back-to-back defeats.
Johan Elmander gave the Swedes the lead in the 10th minute - his crisp shot from Marcus Allback's cross finding the back of the net.
Allback himself got on the scoresheet eight minutes from time to round off the win. The former Aston Villa man collected a cross from Christian Wilhelmsson before rifling home.
Their third win sees the Scandinavians consolidate leadership of Group F, but Spain are ailing and would appear, even if at this early stage, to have their work cut out to ensure a smooth passage to Austria & Switzerland.
Latvia earned a first three-point haul with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Iceland.
The hosts effectively confirmed their victory inside 25 minutes - Girts Karlsons's 14th minute shot and Maris Verpakovskis's header less than 60 seconds later doing the early damage.
The latter struck again just before the half hour, and Aleksejs Visnakovs's 20 yard shot in the 52nd minute completed the rout.
Elsewhere, Northern Ireland earned a very creditable point in a goalless draw in Denmark.
