Half-Time Report: Zlatan Ibrahimovic strike puts Sweden ahead against Montenegro

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores the only goal of the first half as Sweden lead in Montenegro at the break of their Euro 2016 qualifier.

Sweden head into half time of their Euro 2016 Group G qualifier against Montenegro with a 1-0 lead courtesy of an early goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The visitors were in front less than 10 minutes in as the veteran hitman collected the ball inside the six-yard box and found the top corner with a thumping strike.

Sweden had the upper hand for much of the first half, but Montenegro put them under pressure in the 29th minute when Stefan Savic headed Elsad Zverotic's corner narrowly over the crossbar.

Montenegro's best chance for an equaliser fell to Stevan Jovetic shortly before half time, but the Manchester City man's header was saved by Andreas Isaksson, whose awareness preserved Sweden's lead at the break.
