Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scores On Amazing Long Range Bicycle Kick
I do not know a lot about soccer, but I do know an amazing goal when I see when. England took on Sweden in a friendly on Wednesday and they ran into some trouble. Zlatan Ibrahimovic decided to take matters in to his own hands as he scored all four of Sweden’s goals in their 4-2 win. The one shown below is easily the best of the four.
First off, look at how far that attempt is. There are very few people that can deliver an accurate shot on net from there by kicking a ball normally. Instead, the ante gets raised as Ibrahimovic decides to break out the bicycle kick. That puts this goal over the top. You are not going to beat this goal if you try. If this is not the top play on highlight shows across the world, there is something wrong.
Like I said, I know very little about this sport but I do know that England is not a fan of Ibrahimovic. They like to call him overrated but I think he might have told them to shove it after this match. This goal is simply a back breaker and more of a “in your face” type of thing. Sweden was going to win anyways but this adds some more insult to the result.
If you want more people to watch your sport, having highlights like this is a pretty good way to start it off. Even non-soccer fans like me can enjoy something like this.
