Zlatan Ibrahimović maintained his fine form, scoring a 75th-minute winner to help Sweden come back from a goal down to beat Faroe Islands in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C.

Rógvi Baldvinsson had given the hosts a surprising 57th-minute lead, but stung into life, Sweden tied the scores through Alexander Kacaniklic before Ibrahimović hit his 11th goal of the season.
