After becoming Sweden's all-time leading goalscorer with 50 goals following his brace in the 2-0 win over Estonia last night, Zlatan Ibrahimovic said that his favourite from his half-century of international goals was the astonishing 30-yard overhead kick against England in November 2012.

The double against Estonia saw the Paris Saint-Germain forward overtake Sven Rydell's total of 49 goals, which had stood since 1932.

Ibrahimovic was making his 99th appearance for Sweden, and opened the scoring in the third minute, before doubling the lead in the 24th-minute.

The 32-year-old is due to make his 100th against Austria on Monday.
