First, watch the video above, then we will break down Zlatan's phenomenal technique
THE BUILD UP
Check out his eye pattern again. He knows where the goal is, so he is solely focused on the ball.
- Zlatan looks to the right, see's Seb Larsson about to cross the ball
- His eye's do not leave the balls path
- He decides how he will hit the ball and adjusts his body accordingly
- His eyes firmly fixed on the ball, he explodes into the air
- Striking through the center of the ball with his right foot, he follow's through accordingly (toward the corner of the goal)
- As he strikes the ball he is in mid air, using the physics of weight distribution to have a further impact on the ball
- He makes sure his entire body is facing the corner of the goal
All in all, probably the goal of the tournament and shows why Zlatan Ibrahimovic has #ultimatetekkers!
