Zlatan Ibrahimovic nets yet another unusual, highlight-reel goal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has filled highlight reels for years and is the reigning FIFA Puskas Award winner, so him scoring in outrageous fashion isn't exactly new. That doesn't take anything away from what he was able to do Tuesday goal, though.

Ibrahimovic's unusual goal-scoring effort came in the semifinals of the Coupe de la Ligue against Nantes (Alejandro Bedoya's team, though the American was not in action), cleaning up an awful clearance attempt by slipping Nantes goalkeeper Remy Riou in the 5th minute. The kick from Riou's own box didn't clear Ibrahimovic, who was standing about 30 yards from goal.

Instead of settling the ball and looking for the next move, Ibrahimovic reacted with his unique instincts. The Swedish striker pinged the ball back goal-bound immediately, curling his first-time effort into the upper left-hand corner before a stunned Riou could get back on his line. Ibrahimovic bookended his day with a 90th-minute winner after Nantes had equalized late, cementing PSG's 2-1 win and a place in the final against either Lyon or Troyes.
