His skills are devine.
Every time it is about bicycle kicks, this one needs to be mentioned as well. I can't stand Ajax but an assist from the side, at peak height pretty much and right into the opposing corner. Now somebody post the Rooney one .
Can't get enough of bicycle kick goals hehe.
25 yards is a hell of alot more than Roneys ezmode kick
ill never forget trevor sinclairs goal against barnsley for QPR in the 90's saw that live was amazing, maybe not as good as ibras but still bloody good definitely worth checking on youtube for people who havent seen yet^^

It was impressive, pure flashy shit though because he could have turned & volleyed it from his feet but kudos for a cracking strike - what I found even better was the fact you saw players actually admitting it was the best goal they'd seen scored in person, that's high praise indeed.

SIIIICK and never done before!
Most scissor kicks are what, 1,1-1,4m above the ground? Zlatan 2.4m
Most of them are from a range of what, 6-8m? Zlatan 32m
Zlatan just shatter everything by miles, just as he most often do for those who followed him in Holland, Spain, Italy and now France.
Here is another unbelievable goal from Zlatan

Can I be honest, I think the goal you linked now might even be better. It shows he has the football mind. The long bicycle kick of yesterday, he had a "long time" to think about what he could do and then just went for that. So in part luck.
This one is actually in a split second knowing what the goalie will do and hitting it with complete control.
But the semi luck goal is obviously prettier.
Zlatan nets it in the corner, not bouncing from 32m.
It really has very little to do with luck, Zlatan pull off goals like this regularly (even this one has to be among the top ones).
In a split second he understood that the option of taking the ball to the ground, turn around would result on England having 4-5 people on him or at the goal line.
Instead he decide to hit the ball with his back on the goal at a hight of 2.4m.
Lots of brits will argue that it is luck simply cos in their mind anything outside PL is not really worth watching and hence they have far more limited knowledge about players in the rest of Europe than the rest of us.
Zlatan played for Ajax, Inter, Juventus, Milan, Barcelone etc etc. It is really not about luck when you are a top3 striker in the entire world.
First I am not British but come on now.
He knew the keeper was out of the goal so there was plenty of room. Then obviously the option for the bicycle kick is there. He might have controlled it and shot but then at least 1 player would be on the line + maybe the keeper as well. And of course he has enough experience to roughly know how hard to kick it. But precise direction etc. is part skill but also part luck.
And the top 3 strikers is debatable but okay .
Never said you were but I knew there might be a chanse
Watching the video you can see that turning around and taking a shot would cost him time, he had 5 brits nearby, no swede.
One brit is directly next to him, one more incomming, one brit at the goal line already if he had turned and another one incomming.
What Hart the sheep would have been able to do I wont even speculate in considering he sucked pretty damn hard that game but who knows
The thing apart from the distance and difficulty of what he did that make it truly epic is that he did not gamble and go for the easy way to pick it down, turn around, facing numerous briths and hope for the best.
I dont think many of the fotaball journalists object to him being put into the top3 catagory.
Top three strikers? He's behind Messi, Ronaldo and Van Persie for a start.
Ibrahimovic has scored some great goals, but he's also notorious for disappearing during big away fixtures.
It takes skill to score an overhead kick from that range, but it's more fun to see one that beats a keeper in a goal for me, it's spectacular in the way Beckham's volley was back in '96. Best volley of any kind for me is Van Basten's spectacular, with special nods to Gascgoine vs Scotland and Crouch of all people last season. Then you've goals that were set up by impossible solo runs like Maradona or Giggs.
But to me, how this wasn't goal of the year is staggering.
Which one wasnt goal of the year?
That volley from a corner last week in the eufa cup wasnt too bad neither. The one that looked like v basten goal against germany in 88. Forgot who it was though.
