Zlatan Ibrahimovic may well be approaching the final stages of his career, but he's still producing some rather spectacular moments.

Starring for French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night, the Sweden international came close to giving his side the lead against St Etienne in the Coupe de la Ligue.

Six yards out, the 34-year-old struck a thunderous scissor kick towards the goal but was cruelly denied as it rocketed back off the crossbar. It may not have given his side the lead, but it was most definitely pleasing to the eye.

Either side of his acrobatic effort, Ibrahimovic had a fairly quiet outing, but Laurent Blanc's side still managed to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the competition. 

Former Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria assisted Edinson Cavani late on to hand PSG a 1-0 victory.

Zlatan's five-a-side team 

You didn't miss it, did you? Last week we brought you Ibrahimovic's very own five-a-side dream team, and it was quite special. 

Failing to select a goalkeeper, the enigmatic forward picked himself alongside the quartet of Ronaldo (the original), Lionel Messi, Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho. 

There's no doubt about it, the aforementioned five players have been some of the most outstanding stars to enter the field of play in the last 20 years.
