The Next Zlatan Ibrahimovic? Valmir Berisha's Back-Heel Winner for Sweden U17s

Mark PattersonFeatured Columnist IVDecember 31, 2016

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 32 now and he won't be gracing the Sweden line-up forever. 

Happily, though, there's a player in the Under-17s banging in the back-heel goals and who knows—one day the name Valmir Berisha could be just as well known throughout Europe.

The teen's cheeky finish sealed a 2-1 victory for Sweden over Honduras in the quarter-finals of the Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

A semi-final against either Nigeria or Uruguay awaits.
