With a magnificent back-heel shot Ajax player Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the equaliser for his country in the match Italy - Sweden. The Swedish striker again was on good form and proved his class with a goal. Ibrahimovic is among the top scorers of the tournament with two goals in two matches.
Italy appeared to be the better team and went rightly up in the first half when Cassano headed the ball into the Swedish goal. But the Italians failed to widen the margin in the second half. That gave sweden the chance to come back. Only minutes from time Ibrahimovic got to the ball after a scrimmage in the box and back-heeled it beautifully past goalkeeper Buffon: 1-1. Sweden now lead their group with 4 points and a goal difference of 6-1 after two matches.
