So, the soccer world (and, indeed, the sports world) is buzzing over something that happened in the Sweden-England friendly yesterday — namely, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s insane 30-yard bicycle kick goal. To complete a hat trick. It made ESPN’s Top Plays this morning, for all sports, obliterating dunks and Mexican Football league goals and college football highlights featuring University of Toledo players.
On one hand, was it Hart-larious? A Hart-owler? After all, it happened because of Joe Hart’s puzzling bit of net-minding. (Coming out of the box? Putting your head on it?)
Or was it Zlatan-tastic? Zlatan-sational? Again: 30 yards out, bicycle kick, enough curvature to give Ray Hudson wood.
You be the judge. Have at it in the comments. You’re welcome:
Update: If Paul Merson was the ref, he would have jumped on him. (That’s awesome.)
