Ibra's bike vs. England wins Goal of the Year
[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn't make the short list for the Balon d'Or but was honored in Zurich by winning the FIFA Puskas Award
for goal of the year with his long-distance bicycle kick against England in a 4-2 friendly.
Ibrahimovic scored all four goals in the game and his final strike, the bike from 30 yards, was
the most amazing.
"I want to thank everyone who voted for me," he said. "When you win a trophy like this one, one that is voted for by the fans, it's extra special, because they are the
ones who live and breathe football. The fact that they chose my goal is incredible: it touches me deep down in my heart."
