Zlatan Ibrahimovic Produced Outrageous Skill Straight Out Of FIFA Street

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still doing the business at the age of 39, with the Swede having fans in awe over his incredible piece of skill last night.

AC Milan beat Benevento 2-0 at the San Siro through goals from Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez but even without scoring, it was Ibrahimovic who became talk of the town.

That's because in the 83rd minute, the well-travelled striker produced a passage of play that was truly out of this world.


Ibrahimovic combined with Samu Castillejo in attack and the pair played four passes between them. But it was all about the FIFA street style skill from Ibrahimovic.

With his back to goal and a defender closing in, he flicked the ball up in the air and produced an outrageous no-look backheel volley pass to put Castillejo in behind.

It was so ridiculous that it really deserved a goal. And judging by his reaction, there was clear frustration from Ibrahimovic over his colleague not making the most of the opportunity.

Ibrahimovic wasn't able to add to his 15 goals in Serie A this season but he still led the line superbly for the Rossoneri.

His new contract, signed recently, will take him beyond his 40th birthday. And manager Stefano Pioli waxed lyrical about him after Saturday night's win.

"Ibrahimovic is a champion and a champion makes everyone around him raise their game. Missing him was certainly damaging to the team, but we have reacted to the difficulties and showed character," Pioli said, as per Football Italia.

"It's an advantage not to give the opposition defence a regular point to focus on, so Zlatan has this great tactical intelligence and knows how to move around trying to find the space."
