Serbia seal friendly win over Sweden

BELGRADE - Serbia continued their good run of form with a first-minute header from Nikola Zigic and a late Bosko Jankovic effort giving them a 2-0 win over Sweden in a lively friendly on Wednesday. Zigic, who is 2.02-metres tall, nodded home a long throw by Branislav Ivanovic for the Serbians, who had a 3-2 qualifying win over Romania on Saturday. Coach Radomir Antic rested several regular starters but his experimental line-up created plenty of chances. Sweden had their moments too, when Henrik Larsson and Sebastian Larsson forced two good saves from Serbia's reserve keeper Vladimir Disljenkovic. Serbia always looked more likely to score after the break and Jankovic steered in the second after he was set up by fellow substitute Marko Pantelic following a sweeping move.
