Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the orchestrator for Sweden in a 3-0 win over Wales on Sunday in a warmup game for the teams before the start of Euro 2016.

The superstar forward set up Emil Forsberg for the opening goal and was a huge influence before being substituted on the hour mark, by which time Sweden was 2-0 up thanks to Mikael Lustig’s 57th-minute shot.

John Guidetti added a third goal in the 87th, with Wales struggling to mount any serious attacks in Stockholm before star forward Gareth Bale entered as a substitute in the 64th.

It was Wales’ only Euro 2016 warmup because manager Chris Coleman had wanted to spend more time with his players on the training ground before the tournament in France
