AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrates

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been at the top for almost two decades and in a career that has included spells in Sweden, Holland, Italy, Spain, England and the USA, has scored a host of fine strikes.

Here is our rundown of what we think are the best of an unbelievable bunch from the AC Milan star.

5. LA Galaxy v LAFC (2018)

Two goals from Ibrahimovic’s time in the MLS with the Los Angeles Galaxy make our list, starting with his first effort in the competition.

Following his high-profile move from Europe to the States, the Swede showed the American public what all the fuss was about with this stunning strike against city rivals LA FC.

4. Paris Saint-Germain v SC Bastia (2013)

During his four-year spell in the French capital, Ibrahimovic added some incredible goals to his tally at PSG.

The former Malmo-man found the back of the net an incredible 113 times in 122 appearances and this effort in the 2013-14 Ligue 1 season was one of the best.

A well-executed flick took imagination and ability, with an effort that left the keeper wondering what had happened?

3. LA Galaxy v Toronto FC (2018)

A striker who has been known to produce some of the most elaborate finishes on a football field, the Scandinavian scored a typically remarkable goal for the 500th of his career.

A martial arts expert in his youth, with a taekwondo-style finish, the then Galaxy forward found the back of the net with this acrobatic finish that just glanced the inside of the post in its way in.

The technique for this goal is one that few would even contemplate, never mind pull off.

2. Sweden v England (2012)

While this effort against England will be at the top of the list for many, Ibrahimovic’s overhead kick against the Three Lions just misses out on top spot.

An unbelievable goal in many regards, Sweden’s talisman stunned the crowd and the England players with this daring effort that mixed skill, flexibility and, maybe, a touch of arrogance.

1. Ajax v NAC Breda (2004)

With a goal that has been compared to those of the great Diego Maradona, Ibrahimovic’s effort for Ajax against NAC Breda in the Eredivisie has claimed top spot in our list.

A truly remarkable effort for a young player just starting to make a name for himself, it was strike like this one that soon attracted the interest of Juventus.

The ability to use both feet to dribble past a host of defenders, before the composure to slot the ball home, showed even then the potential Ibrahimovic was going to fulfill going forward in his career.
