thumbnail Hello,

The Sweden international has reflected on two of his finest strikes in the past 12 months and has insisted goals of that calibre are rare

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hailed the quality of two of his most spectacular goals in 2013 and has joked that you do not even see strikes like that in video games.

The 32-year-old made the headlines earlier this season with an impressive overhead kick in the international friendly between Sweden and England, while also earning plaudits for his acrobatic strike in the Ligue 1 game against Bastia.

"I score a lot of goals that are hard to replicate. These are the kinds of goals that lift people's spirits," the Sweden international told Le 10 Sport.

"With PSG, I scored an acrobatic back-heel recently and you don't see things like that every week. The same goes for the bicycle kick from 40 yards I scored against England.

"But believe me, when I score goals like this, it feels good. You usually score goals like that in video games and you could compare the feeling of scoring a goal like that in real life to doing so in a video game.

"To be honest, though, I don't think that you can score as spectacular a goal as those of Zlatan in a video game, even though these games are very realistic these days ..."

Ibrahimovic has netted 19 goals in 21 official appearances for PSG so far this term.
