Ibrahimovic breaks Sweden scoring record

The Paris Saint-Germain star scored his 50th international goal against Estonia on Thursday to surpass Sven Rydell's long-standing tally.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic became Sweden's all-time leading scorer Thursday as he struck twice against Estonia in a friendly.

The Paris Saint-Germain star drew level with Sven Rydell on 49 strikes when he scored after just three minutes of the encounter, before besting the record to reach his half-century just 20 minutes later.

The 32-year-old removed his jersey in celebration to reveal a shirt underneath with the words "50 goals" and "it's you who made this possible" written across it, before receiving a yellow card from the referee.

Thursday's clash was Ibrahimovic's 99th in a senior Sweden shirt, with his 100th due to come against Austria next week in the beginning of the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

Rydell, who played mainly for Orgryte IS during a professional career that spanned from 1920 to 1934, scored 49 goals in just 43 appearances for his country.
