The AC Milan striker believes that his side played well and deserved more from its 3-2 defeat to the Three Lions, a result which ends its Euro 2012 campaignZlatan Ibrahimovic believes Sweden was the better team in its 3-2 defeat to England, and the Three Lions were lucky to leave Kiev with three points.
The defeat means Sweden goes into its final game of the tournament against group leader France, without a hope of qualifying for the quarterfinals.
Ibrahimovic feels Sweden produced a much improved display than the loss against Ukraine in its opening match, and that its performance on Friday night deserved at least a point.
"I think we were the better team against England. I really do," he told UEFA.com.
"We should be proud of ourselves because we played a good game. We played the opposite way to the first one.
"We showed more courage and were much better in dead-ball situations. We played just the way we wanted to play.
"In both the games we have played, we were in the lead, but after 60 minutes, we lost it all.
"Why did we lose both games? I don't know. That is something we need to analyze and see what we need to do better, or in a different way."
