Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s global profession finished in a soggy squib when Sweden lost 1-0 to Belgium in their last Euro 2016 Group E match on Wednesday and neglected to achieve the last 16.

Radja Nainggolan’s fine shot following 84 minutes sent Belgium into the knockout stages and an amusement against Hungary as they completed second in the standings, level on six focuses with gathering champs Italy.

The Swedes finished base on one point and Ibrahimovic’s intense guarantee that he could never complete with a failure turned out to be mixed up.

He attempted futile to motivate his group and had a second-half exertion precluded for offside yet Belgium, while never delivering their most familiar football, had enough quality to manage Sweden’s sporadic assaults and make enough assaulting moves.

Sweden began splendidly and Marcus Berg’s furious preview was parried away by Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Belgium reacted with a surging keep running by midfielder Kevin de Bruyne that set up Romelu Lukaku for a shot simply wide and a mazy spill over the edge of the territory by Eden Hazard finished with a De Bruyne strike on objective.

Ibrahimovic sprung into existence with a shot simply past the post however it was an uncommon assaulting minute for Sweden who were pushed profound by the solid running Belgian midfield.

De Bruyne whipped in two risky crosses from the left and from one of them Thomas Meunier flashed a header barely wide just before halftime.

Sweden appreciated a decent spell of ownership after the interim and Ibrahimovic guided the ball into the net from short proximity however the exertion was precluded for offside.

De Bruyne tried goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson with a furious in length range strike and after Sweden cleared another unsafe cross the ball tumbled to Nainggolan whose scratching 20-meter shot flew into the top corner of the net.

Ibrahimovic discarded the ball in dissatisfaction as the Belgian players celebrated and Sweden’s talismanic commander cut a miserable figure after the last shriek as he gradually strolled over to acclaim his group’s yellow-clad fans.
