MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Zlatan Ibrahimovic capped one of the greatest individiual performances ever against the England national team when he scored his fourth of four goals in Sweden's 4-2 win with an incredible 30-yard overhead kick from an impossible angle, taking goalie Joe Hart's attempted clearance out of the air and firing it into the goal in stoppage time. He described it as a "nice goal" before adding it was one of the best goals of his career.

"When I saw the goalkeeper was out, I tried to put it against the goal, and luckily it went in," the Paris St. Germain star said. "It's both luck and skill."

    Zlatan is truly unique as a soccer player in that he is BIG an also AGILE,seldom seen in a big player, especially someone as a striker...goalie, yes,striker, no...this shot only is an example of how extradonary this guy really is...yes, a little luck is good, always...for anyone in the game...but, look at his overall performance, he is just plain good for a big guy up front...mho

    As a human being, I am disgusted by Ibra's arrogance and self-promotion. But as much as he offends me, I have to admit that was a hell of a goal, and only someone like him would have had the audacity to attempt it, let alone the skill to score it!
