I’m a little late on this, but here’s a great top 10 international goals list from the Daily Mail. Those of us saying it was the greatest in history may not be far off.
FOOTBALLING ZEUS, IBRA IS.
The man did something in real life that you could never do in the video game.
It’s even hard in a video game!
Is he coming to MLS in 3 years? He’s going to be 34, and is MLS going to pass up on a player like him as they did for Ronaldinho?
So if you’re playing striker against Joe Hart, you might wanna try a ridiculous bicycle. It will probably work: just ask Wayne Rooney
Zlatan is the only person in the world who would think he could score that goal, and he’s probably right.
Why am I even commenting on this? Is there anything possible to add? Yet here I am, typing anyway… I guess when you see something that utterly amazing you just have to comment into the void, can’t resist it. I could yell at the wall, but I guess I’ll talk to the internet instead….. HOOOOOO LEEE COWWWW.
you’ve got to be a little off kilter even to have the thought in your mind, or subconscious, to try that – I think we all know Zlatan is though.
To have it work out, is just crazy.
Put this one in the dictionary next to “must see goal”
Well, to give you an idea of how many goals I’ve seen in my lifetime — I remember watching WC-70. But I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything like this.
Thanks for the perspective! I only remember as far back as WC94, but I have no doubt that was one of the best goals ever scored.
I first saw that goal on SportsCenter around a half hour ago, and I still can’t stop smiling/laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of it. That was mind blowing.
Zlatan then bent a spoon with his mind.
Seriously, how did the goal not explode in slow mo?
“There is no spoon.” It’s like Ibra sees thru the Matrix.
Some serious Jedi skills!
P.S. Joe Hart is an idiot.
I don’t typically gush over a player, but an Ibrahimovich PSG jersey is being ordered.
Even better with Swedish commentary:
Yeah, this was Russian commentary (I happen to know Russian). I’ve already seen the Swedish version.Wasn’t English available? Wonder how the English commentators reacted. It might have gotten a rise even out of the usually reserved Martin Tyler.
Actually, it wasn’t Russian, but Ukrainian.
Thank you for that….
That is one hell of a way to inaugurate a new arena.
I approve and rate it up there with Rivaldo’s great strike as one of the all time greats:
I normally don’t watch these clips ten times in a row with my jaw on the floor. That is just incredible.
I often enjoy reading the comments before watching the video. I thought the exclamations were hyperbole. They are not. That might be the best goal I’ve ever seen.
I love Jozy, but anyway we could swing a trade?
There should be no comments on this post, just the video on repeat.
Should be two soccer entrants into the Sportscenter Top 10 tonight: Bradley’s golazo against Russia and Zlatan’s absolutely amazing bicycle goal, which should easily be the number one highlight.
I thought Bradley’s goal had a shot at top play…no chance now.
They should honestly be one-two. Bradley’s goal was special, Zlatan’s was transcendent.
I loved that he did this to England. they always talk trash about how he cant play well in European competition and how he would flop in the Premier League. You can have Villa or Drogba but id take Obra
One of the top5 best strikers over the past 5 years
5 years or 50 years?
I literally said “No he’s not…” out loud as that was unfolding.
Ives, now you have to retire “Must See Goal” as a headline. Ibra now owns it. I don’t think I’ve seen a better goal in my entire life. Just mind boggling.
Ibrahimovic > England.
Correct. As Gnarls points out, “Must See Goal” headlines should now all read “Must See Futile Attempt to Upstage the Zlatan”
yeah… what Gnarls said.
Top 5 greatest goals ever?
Ibra has had a couple of others that equal or maybe surpass that one, IMHO (in the last Euro and then in another Euro vs. Italy). I think Messi and Ronaldo are better all around players, but for amazing goals, he is the best by far.
Wow, not a bad night for Zlatan.
I just love that John Terry is somewhere stewing that he could’ve saved that goal.
Wow! That’s insane…to even have the cojones to try it is impressive…the fact that it worked is just beyond comprehension….
Ok, yes, you could call this a must-see goal. Now everyone bow before The Zlatan.
Gooch still kicked his a$$
We might not be able to beat you on the field, but we’ll beat you in the parking lot!
Hart’s going to be having Zlatan nightmares for a long time.
HOLY SH*T that was AMAZING. He just won at football
Probably worth mentioning this was his 4th goal of the game. He single handedly beat England 4-2!
The fact that seeing him score this goal makes you overlook the fact that it was his FOURTH GOAL OF THE GAME pretty much says it all.
The most amazing thing about Ibra and this goal? Even if this goal isn’t top ten of all time (hard to argue against, but for argument’s sake), the amount of truly AMAZING must see goals is staggering. Can any other player boast his must see goal pedigree? With the same level of difficulty and variety?
If you’re not convinced, check out this list of most (but not all) of ZI’s incredible golazos:
