It seems like nary a week goes by without Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a jaw-dropping goal, so it comes as no surprise that he did it again Tuesday.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Ibrahimovic scored a long-range stunner just five minutes into his team’s Coupe de la Ligue (League Cup) semifinal against FC Nantes.
Nantes goalkeeper Rémy Riou’s slipped as he tried to clear the ball, and it headed toward Ibrahimovic, who was standing around 30 yards away from the goal.
Instead of trying to control the ball, the gifted Swede shot a one-timer straight into the top corner of the goal.
Ibrahimovic wasn’t content with that little gem standing as his sole contribution to the scoreline. The 31-year-old scored again in the 90th minute to give PSG a 2-1 victory.
The Ligue 1 (French first division) leaders will face either either Lyon or Troyes in the final. With Ibrahimovic in its lineup, we like PSG’s chances of winning that competition.
