WATCH: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scores Bicycle Wondergoal, Celebrates On A Bicycle

Written By Ankit Prasad | Mumbai | Published:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has demonstrated yet again why he is a force-of-nature and an ageless one at that by scoring a gravity-defying goal for the LA Galaxy against the New England Revolution.

The big Swede has scored some of the greatest overhead kick/bicycle kick goals of all time, and while his latest effort isn't quite the same as his unbelievable 30+ yard acrobatic feat against England in 2012 - the bar is that high - it's remarkable for a number of reasons.

With his side trailing by 2 goals in the 83rd minute, the Galaxy win a throw in deep inside Opposition territory. The ball gets lobbed into a packed box where a Galaxy player manages to scoop it up towards Zlatan who is being closely marked. However, the defenders fail to even get close!

Ibrahimovic lobs the ball over his own head, then swivels - with his back to goal, he unleashes, striking the ball perfectly and at a height. Almost before he hits the ground, the ball careens into the top corner of the net, the keeper also left stunned.

The goal wasn't enough to bring the Galaxy back into the game - they ended up losing 2-1. But the fans were left with plenty to remark upon. Many posted past Zlatan wondergoals:
