Ibrahimovic breaks Swedish scoring record

05 September 2014, 11:08

Solna - 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".

He was promptly yellow-carded for the gesture.

The Swede scored a club record 41 goals in all competitions for French champions PSG last season.
