Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has clearance go off head for Sweden goal

Friday March 27th, 2015

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring for Sweden is nothing new, though it's hard to argue he knew much about his latest strike for his country. 

In the opening minute of the second half of Sweden's Euro 2016 qualifier against Moldova, Ibrahimovic had a goalkeeper clearance attempt ricochet off his head and into the vacated net to open the scoring: 


Sweden entered the match 1-0-3 in Euro qualifying, four points behind Group G-leading Austria. Ibrahimovic, who scored two goals in Euro 2012, Euro 2008 and Euro 2004, is aiming for a fourth try on the continental stage.

His Sweden was ousted by Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in a memorable playoff to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.
