A goal on his debut from Steven Caulker ultimately proved worthless as England succumbed to a 4-2 defeat to Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Wednesday night.
The Paris Saint Germain striker scored all of Sweden's goals on the night, with his fourth strike a wondergoal that will be replayed time and time again.
Ibrahimovic put his side ahead in the 20th minute when he poked a shot past Joe Hart with the outside of his right foot, having initially lost control of the ball.
Danny Welbeck pulled England level with a volley from close range, before Caulker prodded his team ahead from a Steven Gerrard dead ball.
From that point onwards, however, it became the Zlatan show.
The 31-year-old smartly volleyed past Hart to make it 2-2, before his low, long range free-kick somehow made it past the Manchester City 'keeper.
He saved his best for last, however, as Ibrahimovic produced a stunning bicycle kick from 30 yards in injury time, a strike to grace the opening of Sweden's new stadium in Stockholm.
Meanwhile, a brace from Jordan Rhodes earned Scotland a much-needed victory, as they beat Luxembourg 2-1 at Stade Josy Barthel.
The Blackburn striker headed in his first after just ten minutes, before doubling his tally 12 minutes later with a tap-in.
An early dead-ball strike from Lars Gerson in the second half changed the tone of the match as Scotland, under the caretaker management of Billy Stark, were made to sweat.
