Four-some Zlatan crushes England



Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored four as Sweden marked their first game in the Friends Arena with a 4-2 victory over England on Wednesday.

The Sweden captain put his side ahead after 19 minutes, but two goals in the space of three minutes, from Danny Welbeck and then Steven Caulker, turned the game England's way.

As the usual flurry of substitutions disrupted the shape of the game, Ibrahimovic volleyed an equalizer with 13 minutes remaining.

With six minutes left, the Paris St-German forward drilled a low free-kick past the wall and in to the bottom corner to end Roy Hodgson's unbeaten run as England manager.

The best, though, was still to come. Hart, who had a poor night, didn't get much purchase on a clearing header and Ibrahimovic leapt to hook a remarkable overhead kick into the net from 30 yards.
