Sweden beats Iceland 3-2 in Euro 2012 warm-up
GOTEBORG, Sweden (AP) -Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored one goal and set up another to help Sweden beat Iceland 3-2 Wednesday in the host's first friendly warm-up for the European Championship.
Ibrahimovic put Sweden ahead in the second minute, meeting a cross from Sebastian Larsson with a left-footed volley from just inside the area. He then delivered a perfect cross for Ola Toivonen to tap in from close range in the 14th as the hosts looked to be in a high-scoring mood.
However, the Swedish attack fizzled out after that, and Ajax striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson pulled one back for Iceland with a strong header just inside the far post in the 27th.
After a flurry of second-half substitutions, Christian Wilhelmsson added the third with a right-footed shot from a tough angle inside the area in the 78th and Hallgrimur Jonasson headed in a corner for Iceland in injury time.
