Zlatan Ibrahimović Isn't Past It Yet
The Theatre of Dreams got to see a living legend in action last night.
The Red Devils' new era looks promising with all its firepower in stock. The Saints just couldn't handle their attacking force, and counters were virtually non-existent.
When it comes the striker’s role, very few come close to Ibrahimović. Dude showed a glimpse of his ability as he netted home one of his patented headers 36 minutes into the proceedings:
It's fair to say Ibrahimović stands only 6-5 in a nation with a decent percentage of tall citizens. But in the football world, that height is the perfect prescription for a defender’s nightmare.
Dude wasn't done with the night's activities, though, as he thumped a second goal from the spot:
Had the keeper gone the right way? Still no chance.
It's a long campaign yet, but for now, the Red Devils are finally back in their accustomed form.
