Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored all four of Sweden’s goals over England in the 4-2 win on the opening night of the Friends Arena. His fourth goal was an astonishing over-head kick which left everyone open mouthed.
But was it the greatest goal ever?
If one is to compare great goals, one needs a yardstick to contrast each goal. For this instance we’ll use Wayne Rooney’s over-head kick against Manchester City. This was dubbed one of the greatest goals of all time and yet it was beaten by Neymar’s solo effort for the Puskas award for 2011. However if Rooney’s goal was outside of the box, it would have definitely beaten Neymar’s effort. As the Swede’s goal was amazingly outside the box, it automatically makes it one of the best goals of the 21st century.
