England's Fabio Capello wary of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's quality ahead of Sweden clash

The Italian knows the striker well after bringing him from Ajax to Juventus during his spell with the Old Lady and believes he will be the biggest threat in an organized side

England manager Fabio Capello has hailed the quality of Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of his side's friendly clash with Sweden.

The 65-year-old signed the striker during a spell as Juventus manager and admitted his defense will have to work hard to deal with the Swedish danger man.

"Ibrahimovic is a really good player who can decide a top-level game in a single moment," Capello told reporters. "I bought him as Juventus manager and for this reason, I know how important he is for Sweden and what a real danger he is for every opponent."

The Italian went on to praise the discipline of Erik Hamren's side and insisted that England will face a difficult task in overcoming its opponents on Tuesday.

"They are really good and play in a very organised way," he continued. "Everybody knows what they need to do in every moment of the game. It is a little country with a small population but it's always difficult to beat Sweden."
