Sweden vs. Belgium Euro 2016 soccer live: Start time, TV schedule and all you need to know
Sweden vs. Belgium football match is very important for both the teams. And the two soccer powerhouses from Europe will do their best to not just win the outing, but win it in great style.
There are reasons to believe that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is all set to say adieu to professional soccer following the Euro 2016, he and his teammates will do everything to make this EUFA 2016 tournament a memorable one for the team and for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 6.5 feet Ibrahimovic is one of the most important player as far as the current tournament is concerned. He is one of ten players to have made 100 or more appearances for the Swedish national team. He is the country’s all-time leading goalscorer with 62 goals. He represented Sweden at the 2002 and 2006 FIFA World Cups, as well as the 2004, 2008, 2012. Ibrahimovic has been awarded Guldbollen (the Golden Ball), given to the Swedish player of the year, a record ten times, including nine consecutive times from 2007 and 2015.
There are reasons to believe that his fans might be watching the final international match of Zlatan Ibrahimovic when Sweden try to salvage their Euro 2016 dreams against Belgium on Wednesday.
Nonetheless it is going to be a very high target for Belgium. It must be said that the team has struggled in it group opener against Italy. The only consolation for the team is that Sweden didn’t play any better against the Italians. Belgium bounced back in a big way in a win over Ireland, while Sweden could only manage a draw in their match against the Irish. On form, there’s not much reason to hope that Sweden will get the win they need — but if Zlatan turns it up, he could still have another game or two left in his international career.
