Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic ended his international goal drought in style as Greece´s defence of their European Championship title started with a 2-0 defeat in Salzburg.

Ibrahimovic had not scored for his country since October 2005 but smashed into the top corner in the 67th minute at Stadion Wals-Siezenheim.

Receiving a throw from the right flank he fed Henrik Larsson, who returned the ball to the edge of the area to allow Ibrahimovic to unleash his effort without breaking stride. When Petter Hansson bundled in a second five minutes later, the resistance of the Greeks was crushed.
