Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scored A Glorious 25-Yard Free-Kick, It Deserved Much Better Commentary

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a wonderful free-kick for AC Milan in a 3-0 win over Genoa on Wednesday night.

The Swede opened the scoring 10 minutes into proceedings at Luigi Ferraris against Andriy Shevchenko's side.

Theo Hernandez was also over the ball when the Rossoneri were awarded the free-kick but Ibrahimovic always fancied it.

And the 40-year-old came up with a dead-ball strike that had pinpoint precision and nestled right into the corner.


Goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu, Ibrahimovic's former Paris Saint-Germain teammate, had absolutely no chance with it and was rooted to the spot.

The wall wasn't great but take nothing away from the quality of the effort from Ibrahimovic. However, as good a goal as it was, the underwhelming commentary was not on par.

There was a brief increase in pitch when the ball went in but he didn't sound all that excited when he said, "And there's your answer, goalkeeper stood rooted to the spot".

Junior Messias, who has gone from being a delivery man to key goalscorer for Milan in a matter of years, bagged a brace to wrap up the comfortable victory.

Ibrahimovic is still going strong himself of course and was delighted to get Milan back to winning ways after a disappointing defeat to Sassuolo.

"I have a lot of fun," the well-travelled striker told Sky Sport Italia.

"Today it was already decided before the game how much I had to play and I did the best I could. These guys make me have fun and make me feel young.

“In the last two games we made mistakes that cost us the result, the opponents weren’t good but we made mistakes. The championship is still long, today we won and we’re back on top.”

Milan boss Stefano Pioli recently signed a new contract at the San Siro and Ibrahimovic joked he will now have to extend.

"If Pioli renews, I renew," Ibrahimovic said.

"I’m happy for him that he deserves it."
