Man to watch in the Sweden team: forward Ibrahimovic

Also a player who has scored 4 goals with Werder Bremen this season, Markus Rosenberg.

He plays like Nani, on the sides. A winger who can score and set up goals for the forwards. At Werder Bremen, there was a poll asking fans who would be the top scorer by the end of the season.

Some 58,6% (30,392 voters) tipped Rosenberg to score most goals this season. Rosenberg’s closest rival in the race to be crowned top scorer is new signing Claudio Pizarro, who took 32,3% (16,752 votes) of the poll, which landed him in second place.

Interestingly, Portugal forward Hugo Almeida who hasn't played in the previous 3 games, was third place.

My final score prediction Sweden 2-3 Portugal. Goals by Sweden's Rosenberg, Ibrahimovic, Portugal's Quaresma, Nuno Gomes, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Portugal's right-back will need to make sure Rosenberg doesn't get enough space to run and make passes.
