NICE, France (Reuters) - Belgium brought in midfielder Radja Nainggolan for the injured Moussa Dembele in the only change to the team for their final Euro 2016 Group E match against Sweden on Wednesday.

Sweden promoted forward Marcus Berg to the starting line-up in place of John Guidetti.

Belgium, second in the standings behind group winners Italy, would advance to the last 16 in second place with a draw or win against the Swedes, who are on one point from two matches and need a victory to progress.

Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be making his last appearance for his country if they fail to reach the knockout stages.
