Video: Ibrahimovic fails with acrobatic ‘scorpion’ strike for PSG

Published 10 Comments

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has shown on a number of occasions this year why he’s regarded as one of the most talented players in the world.

And, after scoring that incredible overhead kick for Sweden in a 4-2 win against England, the former Barcelona star has tried the spectacular once again in a Ligue 1 match for Paris Saint-Germain against Brest.

Leading 1-0 through his own opener against the French minnows, Ibrahimovic was just ahead of Christophe Jallet’s cross into the box as the super-rich side looked to double their advantage.

The striker managed to twist and turn his body to get a decent contact on the ball, and his ‘scorpion’ effort off the outside of the boot drifted agonisingly wide of the keeper’s right-hand post.

It didn’t turn out to be a miss of importance however, with Kevin Gameiro and Bernard Mendy ensuring a 3-0 win for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Ibrahimovic’s acrobatics were the highlight of the game however, and you can watch it below….
