Sweden’s superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will likely play his 116th and final game for his country against Belgium on Wednesday after announcing he will retire from international football after Euro 2016.
The enigmatic Swede is yet to register a shot on target in this year’s edition of the tournament but is renowned for scoring sensational goals.
Here, we look back at five of his finest strikes for his country.
JUNE 18, 2004 v ITALY
A star was confirmed at Euro 2004 with an improbable back-heel, karate kick volley while facing away from goal. Truly unique.
JUNE 10, 2008 v GREECE
Four years later, his first-time strike from the corner of the penalty area which flew into the far corner helped sink the Greeks.
MAY 19, 2012 v FRANCE
At Euro 2012, his spectacular bicycle-kick enabled Sweden to beat France for the first time in 43 years.
NOVEMBER 14, 2012 v ENGLAND
Defying gravity and conventional wisdom, Zlatan scored with an over-the-shoulder volley from 30 yards that he struck with his heel.
NOVEMBER 17, 2015 v DENMARK
Arguably the most satisfying, as his clinical free-kick helped defeat rivals Denmark and ensure qualification to Euro 2016.
