Zlatan's late strike books final

PA Sport

Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrates his winner as a Nantes player looks crestfallen.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved himself to be the man for the big occasion once again as his double booked Paris Saint-Germain a place in the Coupe de la Ligue final.

The Sweden striker's goals took Laurent Blanc's men to the showpiece match as they beat Nantes 2-1.

His winner was remarkably a free header with seconds of the 90 minutes remaining, with Olivier Veigneau having equalised for Nantes with a cool finish nine minutes from the end.

Ibrahimovic had put PSG ahead in the first half with a brilliant effort. Home keeper Remy Riou slipped as he cleared the ball 30 yards but the fact that he regained his footing mattered little as Ibrahimovic, without readjusting or barely looking, chipped in the stray ball with nothing more than a sidefoot after five minutes.

His tally for PSG now stands at 65 goals in 78 games.
