Goalkeepers beware! Never attempt clearances when Zlatan is around

Care to guess what happened next?

SWEDEN WERE AWAY to Moldova in a Euro 2016 Group G qualifier in Chisinau last night and earned a 2-0 victory thanks to their captain and talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The PSG target man opened the scoring at the beginning of the second half with a bit of a freak goal. Gaining possession in his own box, Moldovan goalkeeper Ilie Cebanu looked in little danger before Zlatan showed tremendous improvisation to direct his low-flying clearance into the empty net.

He doubled their advantage with a penalty six minutes from time to leave Sweden four points off group leaders Austria in second.
