Now, we take for granted the enigmatic skills of Zlatan Ibrahimovic; but it wasn't always that way. At Euro 2004, on the 18th of June, a young striker from Ajax scored a goal that was so outrageous, most pundits called it a fluke. Now we know that's not the case.
The goal against Italy was in the 85th minute and leveled the game for Sweden. Sweden and Denmark drew 2-2 in the next game and Italy were out. Later that summer Ibra signed for Juventus and the legend of Zlatan was born.
No one would doubt he meant it, if he scored it today.
