Euro 2016 bracket sets up for compelling Round of 16 games

Belgium ensured that Wednesday was the final time Zlatan Ibrahimovic took the field in a Sweden shirt, with Radja Nainggolan's late goal the difference in a 1-0 victory in the teams' Group E finale at Euro 2016.

Ibrahimovic announced Tuesday that he'll be retiring from Sweden after the competition, and his side gave him opportunities to take the lead, carving out multiple chances that Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois handled. Jevin De Broyne

The winner came on a deflected shot in the 84th minute, as Nainggolan let a 25-yard shot rip. It took a slight redirect and crept inside the far post, securing the three points for Belgium. Sweden is eliminated with the loss, while Belgium will face Group F winner Hungary in the round of 16.
