English goalkeeper Joe Hart left his goal and ran out and nodded the ball. Zlatan ran after the ball, went up and gave us a wonderful bicycle kick that sat in the open goal. The distance was just over 30 meters.
– I’m trying to score. I get a pass ball and see that the keeper comes out, but choose not to go into the duel, but chooses to back down, the ball is going, it’s just knowing the situation, said Zlatan then.

Afterwards he was hailed by the whole world. Now the U.S. ESPN nominated Zlatans goal in last year’s “Best Play”. There are athletes from all sports who are nominated and compete for best looking sports moment. Ibrahimovic, who is in the quarterfinals, meets Brazil’s Fabiana Oliveira, who did a great kick in the volleyball match against South Korea.
