MOST COMMENTED

[SWEDEN-GREECE REPORT CARD] Defending champion Greece and Sweden appeared to be headed to a 0-0 tie when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his first international goal for more than two and a half years with a brilliant individual effort and minutes later Petter Hansson added a second goal on a scramble on the Greek goal line to give the Swedes a 2-0 win. Soccer America's Paul Kennedy grades the players.
