Ibrahimovic Goal Was Best Ever, Says Gerrard

Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored all four of his side's goals as Sweden have camefrom behind to beat England 4-2 in Stockholm.

The Paris Saint Germain forward was in inspired form at the Friends Arena with his goalscoring feat including a long-range overhead kick.

Ibrahimovic had the honour of scoring the first ever goal at Sweden's new £136m stadium when he poked in from close range in the 20th minute.

England fought back before half-time through goals from Danny Welbeck and debutant Steven Caulker and held on to the lead until the 77th minute.

That's when Ibrahimovic made it 2-2 thanks to a thunderous volley just inside the England penalty area.

The tall striker got his hat-trick seven minutes later though a powerful, low free-kick from 35 yards.

He completed the scoring in stoppage time when he capitalised on a poor header from goalkeeper Joe Hart to unleash an overhead kick from around 25 yards into the net.

It is the first time England have conceded four goals in a match since being knocked out of the 2010 World Cup by Germany.
