Salzburg (Austria):

Sweden's Zlatan Ibrahimovic found his long-lost scoring touch and defending champion Greece fell victim to it, losing to Sweden 2-0 Tuesday night in the European Championship.

Ibrahamovic had no international goals since October 2005 before connecting with a powerful right-footed shot in the 67th minute. Petter Hansson scored five minutes later off a scramble misplayed by the Greek defense.
