Matthew Cobb sent me this goal, from last night’s match between Sweden and France in the European championship (Sweden 2-0), labelling it as “the best goal so far.” Here Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores with a terrific bicycle kick.
Despite that, Sweden is out of the championship. Matthew’s terse report on the championship:
Sweden were chucked out though, despite stuffing France (who were woeful and will be thumped by Spain in the 1/4s)
And, in response to a reader’s note below, I’ve found Danny Welbeck’s winning backheel goal in minute 78 of the England vs Sweden match (3-2).
