7th Best Player in the World - Ibrahimovic - scores winner in El Classico:

Yesterday Barcelona beat Real Madrid 1-0 at the Nou Camp to win Spain's big derby. Coming off the bench to score for Barcelona was summer acquisition Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Here's a video of the goal:

A nice finish - with his left foot no less.

At the beginning of the sequence he shows for the ball, takes a touch with his right foot and passes it off. When the ball goes to the right flank, he plots his move and then attacks the open space at just the right time, managing to stay onside and surprise the Real Madrid defense.

It is a classic Dani Alvez looping cross and Ibrahimovic surprisingly lets the ball come across his body then finishes with his left foot.

A confident finish to be sure.

But what marks this goal for me is the deceptive run which fools the Real defense.

Ibra is a thinker and that's why he is one of the best players in the world.
