Olsson backing Sweden's Ibrahimovic to fire against 'scared' England

Sweden defender Martin Olsson is confident that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be at his best when the Swedes take on England at Euro2012 tomorrow night.

AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic is constantly criticised by the British press but after his scoring performance in the 2-1 loss to Ukraine on Monday night Olsson expects him to again be firing when they clash with the Three Lions in Kiev.

"I think they say what they say to throw him off balance," the Blackburn Rovers left-back told Expressen.

"Everyone knows that he is an awesome player, he has won something with every club he has played for.

"I do not think anyone can argue with that. Maybe they feel a little scared now, nervous for when we will meet them.

"If Ibrahimovic is in the right mood, anything can happen. Sometimes he doesn't touch the ball in 20 to 30 minutes and then he suddenly explodes. Hopefully it will happen against England as well."
