Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores for PSG in return to boyhood club Malmö


Zlatan Ibrahimovc marked his return to his boyhood club by scoring a goal to put Paris Saint-Germain up 3-0 over Malmö in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday. 

Ibrahimovic, who was born and raised in the Swedish city of Malmö, came up through the ranks of local team Malmö FF before being snapped up by Dutch powerhouse Ajax Amsterdam. Since then, the Swede has become one of the most celebrated strikers in the world, having played for Juventus, Internazionale, A.C. Milan, Barcelona, and now PSG. 

Wednesday's game marked the first time Ibrahimovic had returned to Malmö since leaving as a player 14 years ago. He celebrated the occasion by scoring this gaol, winning the ball on the edge of the box before finishing from a tough angle. 

The goal was Ibrahimovic's first in the Champions League this season. He was a late substitute and received a nice ovation from the Malmo crowd.
