Half-Time Report: Erkan Zengin cancels out David Alaba penalty

Erkan Zengin cancels out an early penalty from David Alaba to send Sweden into half time 1-1 with Austria in their Euro 2016 qualifier.

Sweden have come from a goal down to share a 1-1 scoreline with Austria in their Euro 2016 qualifier this evening.

The hosts had an early opportunity when Sebastian Larsson had a touch with his hand inside the penalty area, giving Austria a penalty, which David Alaba blasted into the top left corner.

It took Sweden just five minutes to get back on level terms though, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic headed the ball in for Erkan Zengin to volley past the keeper.

Zengin almost added a second just a couple of minutes later, attempting to slice the ball in from out wide, but his effort struck the bar.

Ibrahimovic tried to put the visitors ahead just after the half hour mark from a free kick, but the striker's effort failed to clear the wall.

The hosts came close to restoring their lead shortly before the half-time whistle, but Andreas Isaksson parried Julian Baumgarlinger's effort behind to keep the sides level.

Sweden's forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic kicks the ball next to Portugal's defender Bruno Alves during the FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifier play-off first leg football match Portugal vs Sweden at the Luz stadium in Lisbon on November 15, 2013
