Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke his two-year goal drought in the yellow shirt before insisting he wants to fire his side into the UEFA EURO 2008 quarter-finals with a win over Spain on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Inter Milan forward has suffered with a knee injury recently, but ignored any ill-effects to unleash Sweden's first goal in Tuesday night's 2-0 win over defending champions Greece in Salzburg.

It was his first international goal since October 2005.

Group D rivals Spain also got off to a winning start with a 4-1 demolition of Russia on Tuesday and Ibrahimovic says Sweden will go hard out for a win when the sides clash in Innsbruck on Saturday with a last-eight place at stake.

"Spain are a very strong opponent, they are favorites to win the tournament," he said at Sweden's EURO 2008 base.

"I saw part of their game, they played very technical football, the type I love to play. "It will be a great and important game, we are very focused. We want to win, we would never play to draw a game."

Ibrahimovic said his sore knee was not proving to be a problem.

"The knee is a little bit swollen, it is not painful, it is not as bad as I thought I would be," he said.

And Swedish coach Lars Lagerback was pleased his star striker had come through the game against Greece.

"He has not played 90 minutes for a long time, he did well," said the coach. "I hope we will confirm against Spain that we are a very solid team and one of the favourites to win the European title."
