Ibrahimovic nets a scorcher in Sweden training

Joining up with the national team after resisting transfer overtures from AC Milan, the Paris Saint-Germain star cracks in a great goal off the post ahead of facing Russia

GOAL EXTRA TIME   By George Ankers
As per usual, things are not quiet in the life of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The maverick striker has just finished spending his summer fending off interest from a "desperate" AC Milan as he decided to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, while breaking the internet back home on the side as news of a Champions League reunion with Malmo brought down his first team's official website .

Now joining up with the Sweden national side once again for the latest round of Euro 2016 qualifiers, Ibrahimovic has been dazzling his team-mates in training almost as a matter of course.

With a trip to Russia on Saturday in sight, the 33-year-old warmed up with a scorching goal - which, of course, he celebrated in typical unimpressed style.

Boom boom!!! En kanon i krysset från Zlatan Ibrahimovic på dagens träning. Rysslandsmatchen närmar sig och sedan fyller vi Friends mot Österrike på tisdag. #fyllFriends #dengulaväggen

After the showdown with Russia, Zlatan's next test will be a home game on Tuesday against Austria - who unexpectedly top Group G six games in, their 16 points four better than Sweden and twice the record of Leonid Slutsky's side.
