Ibra fires Sweden to win over Serbia

Sweden completed their Euro 2012 preparations with a 2-1 win over a young Serbia side in Solna, Stockholm.


Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic converted the winner from the spot after substitute goalkeeper Damir Kahriman brought down forward Ola Toivonen on 51 minutes.

Kahriman had come on at half-time, replacing debutant Branimir Aleksic, who was at fault when he flapped at a corner to allow Toivonen to open the scoring.

Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic had equalised for the Serbs, who fielded an experimental line-up with a full XI of first-teamers absent from a youthful squad.

Sweden face hosts Ukraine in their first match of the Euros, having been drawn in Group D, which also contains England and France.
