Amazing Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored all four goals as Sweden doubled the score on England 4-2 in an international football friendly at the Swedbank Arena, Stockholm Thursday (Thailand time).
The Paris Saint-Germain striker poked home to open the scoring before Danny Welbeck volleyed an equaliser.
Steven Caulker, one of six England debutants, prodded his team in front but Ibrahimovic smashed a leveller. The 31-year-old drilled in a low free-kick before completing the win with a stunning bicycle kick from 30 yards.
The Netherlands and Germany played a mostly boring scoreless draw.
France came from behind and dominated play to defeat Italy 2-1.
The United States escaped with a hard-fought 2-2 draw in Russia on Wednesday, the top early match among the last spate of international football friendlies of the year.
