thumbnail Hello,

The young Blackburn star shone bright tonight.

Sweden 4-2 Bosnia & Herzegovina
International Friendlies - Fixtures & Results

A Sweden side, without their captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic, hosted Bosnia & Herzegovina tonight as part of the international friendlies leading up to the World Cup.

It was a comprehensive win for the hosts as Blackburn Rovers starlet Martin Olsson pulled a brace out of the bag in the second half to quash any fears the fans had of the game ending in a stalemate.

PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen opened the scoring just one minute before the break, giving the Bosnian visitors some food for thought during the break.

The traveling side responded well after the restart, claiming back a goal through Sejad Salihovic only 2 minutes after the teams had made it back to the pitch.

However, the Hoffenheim player was not allowed to cheer for long as Maritn Olsson got his name on the scoresheet not once, but twice throughout the second half.

It seemed as though Olsson's goals would spell the end of the game, but Marcus Berg and Ermin Zec exchanged strikes in the dying seconds of the game to bring the final scoreline to 4-2.
