Sweden's Alexander Isak scores screamer in World Cup qualifier vs Kosovo

Alexander Isak celebrates his goal for Sweden vs Kosovo

Alexander Isak is a special talent.

The Swedish youngster, just 22, was one of his country’s brightest sparks as they reached the last-16 of Euro 2020.

Isak, who currently plays for Real Sociedad, has been tipped to move to one of the world’s biggest clubs in the future.

And he showed what all the fuss is all about with a quite incredible goal for his country against Kosovo on Saturday evening.

Sweden went into the half-time break with a one-goal advantage courtesy of Emil Forsberg’s penalty.



Isak then doubled his side’s lead in the 62nd minute and he did so with a wonderful strike.

Picking up the ball on the sideline, Isak produced a filthy nutmeg to go past a Kosovo player.

He then took aim from some 25 yards out and his effort curled beautifully into the top corner. Watch the goal below:

That is just magic. No goalkeeper in the world would have saved that.

That wasn’t his only piece of brilliance during the game.

Just a minute before his goal, Isak danced past multiple Kosovo players with some brilliant quick feet but could only see his effort saved.

He got up and went past another player but was denied by Arijanet Muric once again.

Speaking in 2019, per talkSPORT, Isak revealed he had been compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘a lot of times’ in the past.

Those comparisons make more and more sense with every game he plays.

Sweden would go on to win 3-0. They remain in second in Group B, one point behind Spain.

Janne Andersson’s side have a game in hand though and will go to top of the group if they beat Greece on Tuesday.
