Ibrahimovic inspired Sweden – Hamren

It was 3-0 at half time, and Germany were to score another before Ibrahimovic scored the first of Sweden’s four.

“He is our captain and our best player”, Hamren said. “His goal was fantastic, but the pass that provided it was too.

“We needed him to regain that energy and he showed the way for the rest of the team. Momentum was gained and the players around him picked themselves up to help.

“He gave a very good speech to the players at half-time and he showed his class.”
