Big Z had what we in the biz like to refer to as a pretty good day.

The Swedish big man managed four goals in Wednesday's friendly over England. If that weren't enough, he also managed this marvel of a goal from distance. 

BuzzFeed Sports spotted this moment of brilliance by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and we are so very glad they did. 

The remarkable strike came in the 90th minute of a friendly that was already well in hand. Still, there is no need to go easy when you notice the goalkeeper comes well off his line. 

Joe Hart comes well out of the box to head out a back pass, only it goes a few yards out to where the 31-year-old captain was ready. 

Knowing full well that the goal was open, Ibrahimovic wasted no time to get a strike in.

Being that every second mattered as Hart ran back to his post, the Swedish star decided to go with a fantastic bicycle kick. 

The audacious attempt was actually perfect as it sailed well overhead and into the back of the net. While it was a day where nothing could go wrong for the Paris Saint-Germain striker, it was the opposite kind of day for the Three lions. 

There is no need to search or ponder, because this wins the goal of the year.
