Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s four-goal haul inspired Sweden to a 4-2 win against England on Wednesday, with the Paris Saint-Germain star scoring a spectacular late goal in Stockhhom.

The Three Lions’ Hart ‏(@JoeHart_01) is gutted about the result: “Absolutely devastated about last night’s game, I can only apologise to all my teammates and the fans… I can only say two words though: Zlatan Ibrahimovic.”

Brazil legend Ronaldo ‏(@ClaroRonaldo) is impressed: “What a fantastic goal by Zlatan Ibrahimovic against England!!!”
