They used to hold one of the longest records against England having not been defeated for 43 years until a 1-0 victory by the Three Lions at Wembley in 2011. This was followed by the first competitive victory in nine attempts during Euro 2012. However, before a year was out England played their third game against Sweden to inaugurate the new Friends Arena in Stockholm. Zlatan Ibrahimović scored four goals as Sweden ran out 4-2 winners.
