Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn’t know what all the fuss over Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest soccer feat is about.
The Los Angeles Galaxy striker offered a hilarious reaction to the bicycle-kick goal Ronaldo scored Tuesday in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League win over Juventus. While the soccer world applauds and pats Ronaldo on the back, Ibrahimovic appeared on “SportsCenter” Tuesday night and gave the Portuguese superstar this advice on scoring more spectacular goals.
Ibrahimovic was referring to the ridiculous, bicycle-kick goal he scored in November 2012 for Sweden against England in an exhibition game. To be fair, he was more like 30 yards away from England’s goal (plus another 5 to 10 off to the side) when he silenced his England-based critics. What’s more impressive is the fact Ibrahimovic’s bicycle-kick was the fourth goal he scored against England that day.
Ronaldo scored twice against Juventus, but he missed a pair of late chances.
Perhaps that’s why Ibrahimovic, with a twinkle in his eyes, seemed entirely nonplussed by one of the great goals of the 2017-18 season.
