Zlatan Ibrahimovic breaks Swedish scoring record

Paris: Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a record-breaking 50th goal for Sweden in an international friendly against Estonia on Thursday, and then picked up a booking.

The PSG forward drew level with Sven Rydell`s post-World War II tally of 49 with a third minute effort.

He then claimed the record for himself in the 24th minute, celebrating the feat by lifting his shirt to reveal a t-shirt with written on the back "50 goals" and on the front "it`s you who made it possible".

He was promptly yellow-carded for the gesture.

The 32-year-old Ibrahimovic was earning his 99th international cap, with his 100th set to come in Monday`s Euro 2016 qualifier against Austria.

The Swede scored a club record 41 goals in all competitions for French champions PSG last season.
