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.

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!!!”

Sunderland striker Louis Saha ‏(@louissaha08) reckons it is the best goal ever: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the best goal ever. Did choose to score that screamer the day he scored 4 against England. Bossssss.”
