Rangers colossus Filip Helander continued his incredible week after scoring the winner in the Old Firm by helping Sweden inflict Spain’s first World Cup qualifying defeat since 1993.

The Rangers defender was one of the best players on the pitch as the Swedes came back from a goal down to stun the former World and European champions with a 2-1 win.

Spain debutant Carlos Soler put the visitors ahead with a half-volley from Jordi Alba’s cross barely five minutes in before Alexander Isak levelled things up a minute later after a rare Sergi Busquets mistake.

12 minutes into the second half, Sweden took the lead through Viktor Claesson following some excellent play by Juventus midfielder Dejan Kulusevski.

Helander was paired with Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof and the pair look to have formed a solid partnership in the heart of the Swedish defence.
