Ola Toivonen: Opened scoring

Sweden will head into Euro 2012 in winning form after beating Serbia 2-1 in their final warm-up game, although goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson did suffer an injury scare.

Erik Hamren's side opened the scoring midway through the first half when Serbia shot-stopper Branimir Aleksic spilled a corner and Ola Toivonen tapped in from close range.

Serbia were not behind for long, though, as Neven Subotic escaped his marker from a corner to head past Isaksson just four minutes later.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired Sweden back in front from the penalty spot on 52 minutes after Toivonen had been brought down by substitute goalkeeper Damir Kahriman.

Sweden picked up the tempo in the second half but could not increase their lead, while they also appeared vulnerable at the back.

Isaksson then had to be withdrawn in the 71st minute, although it was only thought to be a slight groin injury rather than a recurring shoulder problem that has sidelined him in the past.

Sweden have been pitted alongside England, France and co-hosts Ukraine in Group D at Euro 2012.
