Philippe Mexès's Overhead Kick: Better Than Zlatan Ibrahimovic? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Philippe Mexès had the audacity to 'do a Zlatan' a week after Ibrahimovic's awesome volley against England in AC Milan's 3-1 Champions league victory over Anderlecht.

Controlling the ball on his chest with his back to goal, Mexès executed a superb looping volley to leave a shell-shocked Silvio Proto rooted.


"The only thing to do was give it a go," remarked the Frenchman after the Rossoneri sealed their passage through to the last 16.

Unlike Zlatan's Ibracadabra act, it wasn't a friendly either. So whose do you prefer?
