The 6 Greatest Sweden Goals Ever (On The Internet)

Ireland take on Sweden tomorrow night, and to celebrate we've searched far and wide to bring you the six greatest Swedish goals of all time, and these are the six that YouTube threw up. Rather unsurprisingly, half of them come from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while as a shock to Leeds supporters, Thomas Brolin scored two of them...

1. Thomas Brolin v England (Euro '92)

The chubby Swede came to the attention of British viewers when he finished off this memorable one-two with Martin Dahlin against England in Euro 92.


2. Thomas Brolin v Romania (USA '94)

Brolin played a pivotal role in Sweden's run to the semi-final at USA 94, scoring this well crafted goal against Romania in the quater finals, four years before Javier Zanetti did the same for Argentina against England. Sweden went on to beat Romania on penalties by the way, after drawing 2-2.


3. Henrik Larsson v Bulgaria (Euro 2004)

Sweden beat Bulgaria 5-0 in their opening game of Euro 2004 in Portugal, with Henrik Larsson scoring the pick of the bunch, a diving header from a perfectly placed cross.



4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic v Italy (Euro 2004)

Zlatan was still a rising star in Europe when he scored this spectacular, back-heeled, lobbed equaliser against Trap's Italy in the 2004 Euros, which set Sweden on the way to the quarter finals.


5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic v France (Euro 2012)

By the time Sweden played France in Euro 2012 in Kiev, they were already out of the tournament after two narrow defeats to Ukraine and England. They took some consolation from beating France in their final game, which was won with a late Zlatan acrobatic, sideways, scorpion volley.


6. Zlatan Ibrahimovic v England (2012)

The greatest of them all. In their opening game at the new Friends Arena in Stockholm Zlatan rounded out a perfect night for himself and his country with this ridiulously audacious goal in injury time to make it 4-2.
