Euro 2012 Preview: Sweden


Sweden will look to build on their 3-2 win over Iceland when they take on Serbia on June 5 in what will be their last match in their preparations for Euro 2012.

Despite having divided opinion since he burst onto the Swedish football scene with Malmo in 1999, Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will certainly be one to watch.

The 30 year old, who won title after title with Juventus, Inter and the Rossoneris has netted 29 goals in 75 internationals for his country.

And while Ibrahimovic is assured the captain’s armband, the performance of Ola Toivonen and Markus Rosenberg in Sweden’s last friendly will certainly give national team coach Erik Hamren a selection headache for their opener against Ukraine on the 11th of June.
