Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores with ridiculous overhead kick on empty net for fourth against England

Dirty Tackle

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored all four of Sweden's goals in its 4-2 friendly win against England and he saved his best for last. An hour into the match, with the score at 2-1 in England's favor, the traveling England supporters taunted Zlatan with the chant "You're just a s*** Andy Carroll." After that, he scored three more goals in the final 15 minutes to give Sweden the win in its first match at the new Friends Arena.

His fourth and final goal came in stoppage time, when Joe Hart came out of his area to weakly try and head the ball clear. Instead, he set Zlatan up for a bit of athletic wonder as he contorted his giant frame to get off a booming overhead kick that somehow landed comfortably in the goal. Ibrahimovic was then shown a yellow card for removing his shirt.

"It is the best goal I have seen live," said England captain Steven Gerrard after the game. "An overhead kick from 25 yards when the ball is six feet in the air -- only certain players can do that. And he is a special player. ... That was one of the best individual performances I have seen."
