Zlatan Ibrahimovic made history in the most Zlatan Ibrahimovic way possible – by scoring a bicycle kick in stoppage-time to earn a point for Serie A leaders AC Milan against Udinese.

In doing so, the 40-year-old Swede has become just the third person in the 21st century to score 300 goals across Europe’s top five leagues – following in the footsteps of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

AC Milan found themselves trailing Udinese due to a close-range finish from Beto with former Watford forward Isaac Success shown a red card for Udinese in stoppage-time for a foul on Mike Maignan, with Ibrahimovic salvaging a draw for the Rossoneri. The draw moves AC Milan two points clear at the top of the table, though Inter and Napoli could replace them at the summit if they win their games on Sunday.

The goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though, also had historic significance, as he became the third player to score 300 goals across Europe’s top five leagues this century. The Swede has now scored 404 league goals in total in his career, including 16 for Swedish club Malmo, 35 for Dutch giants Ajax and 53 for MLS side LA Galaxy.

His goals in Spain’s La Liga for Barcelona, England’s Premier League for Manchester United, France’s Ligue 1 for Paris Saint Germain, and in the Serie A for AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus, now totals 300.

Ibrahimovic’s club career total currently stands at 404 if you include his goals for Malmo, Ajax and LA Galaxy – however, he is still behind the goalscoring exploits of Manchester United forward Ronaldo and PSG star Messi, who have scored 483 and 475 league goals respectively.
