Ibrahimovic Sweden Record
Sweden's forward and team captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrates after scoring his second goal of the match and his 50th goal for his national team and by that breaking the old record of 49 goals during the friendly football match between Sweden and Estonia at Friends Arena in Solna, near Stockholm on September 4, 2014.


Solna, Sweden: Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a record-breaking 50th goal for Sweden in an international friendly against Estonia on Thursday, and then picked up a booking.

The PSG forward drew level with Sven Rydell's post-World War II tally of 49 with a third minute effort.

He then claimed the record for himself in the 24th minute, celebrating the feat by lifting his shirt to reveal a t-shirt with written on the back "50 goals" and on the front "it's you who made it possible".
