It really is a pretty ridiculous goal as so few could pull off such a shot given the chance.



The other thing that adds to it for him seems to how he does what he does (especially these great 'athletic' type plays) with his size. You don't usually see guys that are that tall that can make these kind of plays. It makes it look more "flashy" to an extent just because it is that much rarer to see a guy with that build do what he does.
You will like this piece on Zlatan, excellent writing.
