WATCH: Scoring a flying, bottom-of-boot, karate-reminiscent goal is ‘Daring to Zlatan’

France Soccer League One

Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t even averaging a goal-per-game in Ligue 1 this season, but he’s still doing mighty things for Paris Saint-Germain.

Exhibit No. 345 is Saturday’s goal against Caen, as Ibrahimovic leapt to shoot a cross home with the bottom of his boot in a manner that would make Bruce Lee proud.

Also included in the “Daring to Zlatan” catalog is getting a script tattoo that runs through your nipple. Holy smokes. I can’t imagine how much that stings.

All was not lost for Caen, who came back to draw the match 2-2 in PSG’s house despite trailing 2-0 in the 88th minute. The club is now a point back of No. 1 Lyon, which plays Sunday at Lorient.

The Parisien club begins its UEFA Champions League Round of 16 pairing with a home leg against Chelsea on Tuesday.

Here’s the goal, sadly without replay, just hugs.
