Sweden full of free-kick specialists at Euro 2012

KIEV, Ukraine — Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the clear leader for Sweden in most aspects of the game, but when it comes to free kicks he may have to take a back seat at the European Championship.

Sweden boasts four free-kick specialists in its lineup, and converting its set pieces into goals may be key to securing advancement from Group D.

The only question is, who gets to take them?

While Ibrahimovic has scored some spectacular goals from set pieces in the past, he may have to defer some opportunities at Euro 2012 to Sebastian Larsson, Kim Kallstrom and Rasmus Elm.

None of them may quite match Cristiano Ronaldo's ability, but there's no doubt that set pieces may become one of Sweden's most dangerous weapons at this tournament.
