Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s brace against Nantes last night not only sent PSG through to the French League Cup Final, but also saw him score his 350th career goal.
The Swede scored a trademark wonder goal with a 30-yard return-to-sender lob, before heading in the winner a minute from time.
The two goals were his 65th and 66th for PSG, equaling the most goals he’s scored for a single club. Ibrahimovic also managed 66 goals for Inter Milan, though he has only taken 78 games to do so for his Parisian club, compared with 117 games for Inter.
The striker has 48 goals for Sweden in 96 games, at a rate of a goal in every other game. He won the 2013 Puskas Award for his 30-yard overhead kick while playing for his country in their showpiece friendly against England, which commemorated the opening of Sweden’s new national stadium, the Friends Arena.
Zlatan started his career at Malmo FF where he netted 19 goals in 44 games, earning him a move to Ajax.
He has also played for Juventus, Barcelona and AC Milan in his career, turning down a chance to join Arsenal in 2000 after manager Arsene Wenger asked him to trial.
