Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic had four goals in Wednesday night's 4-2 win over England and without a doubt none of them was prettier than a no-look overhead "bicycle" kick from outside the box to seal the victory. The goal happened with 45 seconds into stoppage time, with Sweden already up 3-2.

Joe Hart, England's goalie, had drifted 25 yards off his line in an attempt to head the ball to a teammate but he misdirected it, setting up Ibrahimovic for the improbable score. Footage of the play can be seen here:
