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 31-year-old’s sensational overhead lob which left Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart stranded was hailed on Twitter by the professionals, starting with the England number one himself.

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