Zlatan Ibrahimovic drew superlatives the world over with his stunning four goal performance against England last week, mainly thanks to his wondergoal in the dying minutes of the inaugural game at the Friends Arena.

With his back to goal and England goalkeeper Joe Hart in no man's land, the enigmatic Paris Saint-Germain striker launched an overhead kick from 25 yards which flew perfectly into the back of the net.

The goal was so good the next day it prompted the question; 'Was it the best goal of all time?'

While that seems a little but over the top there was no doubting just how good Ibrahimovic's goal was, and since then the internet has been awash with amazing Zlatan moments.

But today came a video that only a few would have seen that perfectly demonstrates his laconic brilliance.

In the warm up for the game, in which Sweden ran out 4-2 winners against England, Ibrahimovic was amongst his team-mates preparing for the big game by...juggling the ball.

While it his highly unlikely his array of tricks helped him prepare for the challenge of facing England he certainly showed his wide array tricks. Then, as the ball drops to the floor, Ibrahimovic spots another ball rolling by and slams it into the crossbar from around 30-yards away! The video, which sums up everything there is to love about Ibrahimovic, can be seen below. Enjoy.
