Ibrahimovic returns to face Germany

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns for Sweden in their last 16 clash with Germany.

The Juventus striker missed Sweden's 2-2 draw with England with a groin injury.

So Markus Allback, who scored in that match, drops to the bench to allow Ibrahimovic to partner Henrik Larsson in attack.

Germany coach Jurgen Klinsmann brings back Christoph Melzelder in defence, with Robert Huth making way.

Germany: Lehmann, Friedrich, Metzelder, Mertesacker, Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Frings, Ballack, Schneider, Podolski, Klose. Subs: Jansen, Huth, Kehl, Nowotny, Hanke, Neuville, Kahn, Asamoah, Hitzlsperger, Borowski, Odonkor, Hildebrand.

Sweden: Isaksson, Alexandersson, Mellberg, Lucic, Edman, Ljungberg, Linderoth, Kallstrom, Jonson, Ibrahimovic, Larsson. Subs: Nilsson, Anders Svensson, Alvbage, Hansson, Stenman, Karl Svensson, Elmander, Andersson, Allback, Wilhelmsson, Rosenberg, Shaaban.
