Sweden exited Euro 2012 on a high note with a 2-0 victory over France that may have massive implications for Laurent Blanc's side's future in the tournament.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a wondrous volley before Sebastian Larrson sealed the first points of the tournament late on for the already-eliminated Swedes Combined with England's victory over Ukraine, though, the defeat means that France finish second in Group D and will now face a quarter-final with Spain.

After a scoreless first-half, Ibrahimovic ignited the occasion with a spectacular mid-air volley from the edge of the area after a cross from Sebastian Larsson. The enigmatic front man, who claimed that he didn't care who won the tournament because he was off on his holidays, showed that he still cared about giving Swedish supporters something to cheer with a memorable effort.

Though they had plenty of possession and twice as many efforts as their opponents, France, featuring two changes from the side that beat Ukraine, was unable to get back on level terms.

And in the last minute of the 90, Larsson confirmed victory for Erik Hamren's side. Christian Wilhelmsson provided a cross that his fellow-substitute Samuel Holmen met with a volley that bounced into the ground and onto the cross bar before Larsson smashed home the rebound.
