On the same day that Zlaaatan.com started making the rounds, Zlatan Ibrahimovic himself scored a hat trick for PSG in a game against St. Etienne in the Coupe de France on Wednesday.
The Swedish striker tallied his first off a penalty kick in the 21st minute. It was his 100th goal for the club, which would have been the headline for this game had he not scored a fantastic double in the closing stages of the game.
The second came in the 81st minute on a breakaway, as Ibrahimovic touched the ball around goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier and held off a defender before finishing easily into an open goal. It sounds routine, but when Ibrahimovic does it, it looks anything but:
The final goal game just over 10 minutes later, as Ibrahimovic was allowed time in the box and a narrow opening in the defense. The Swede took advantage, finishing at the near post past Ruffier.
The goals helped PSG seal a place in the final of the Coupe de France with a 4-1 win. But more importantly, they provided ample fodder for Ibra's own search engine.
