[EUROPE] There may be no better player in Europe right now than Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He scored another fabulous goal for Italian leader Inter Milan. For who's up, who's  down, who's in and who's out in Europe ...

UP ...

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC. The Swede showed why he is the best striker in Italy's Serie A when he scored a spectacular goal to cap off leader Inter Milan's 3-0 win over last-place Reggina, picking up the ball 30 yards out, beating three defenders and chipping the goalie from the edge of the box.

KLAAS-JAN HUNTELAAR. Only a couple of months ago, the Dutch striker was unhappy with his playing time at Real Madrid. With eight goals in his last six games -- including two a 3-0 win over Almeria on Sunday -- he doesn't have to worry about that any more.

OLYMPIAKOS. It won its fifth straight Greek league title and 12th in the last 13 seasons with a 3-2 win over Panionios. Brazilian midfielder Dudu, Englishman Matt Derbyshire and Serbian Predrag Djordjevic scored for Olympiakos, which leads Panathinaikos and PAOK by 11 points with three games to play. The only time Olympiakos has not won the title since 1997 came in 2004 when Panathinaikos took the title.

DOWN ...

HERTHA BERLIN. The Bundesliga leader's margin over Bayern Munich, Hamburg and streaking Wolfsburg shrunk to one point when it fell to VfB Stuttgart, 2-0. Bayern Munich beat Karlsruhe, 1-0  Stuttgart won on goals by Cacau and Sami Khedira five minutes apart in the second half.

IN ...

GIAMPAOLO PAZZINI. The striker, who has scored eight goals in eight league games since his January move from Fiorentina to Sampdoria, earned a spot in in Italy's squad for World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Ireland. He was called up ahead of AC Milan's Filippo Inzaghi and Juventus striker Alessandro Del Piero.

OUT ...

THEO WALCOTT. The young English striker injured his knee in training with Arsenal on Friday, ruling him out of England's upcoming internationals, including a World Cup qualifier against Ukraine. The knee injury could keep the 20-year-old out of action for at least five weeks.
