Ibrahimovic breaks another record

Belgium begins the Tedesco era on the right foot. Or rather with the left, that of Dodi Lukebakio, who was the most decisive player of the match, generating the two goals for the team. In addition, Andersson gave twenty minutes to Ibrahimovic to break another record in his career.

The first scare of the game came from Sweden, which was not scared against one of the greats in Europe. Belgium is under reconstruction and the Nordics knew they could do damage. Kulusevski invented a shot with virtually no angle that, after hitting the bottom of Courtois’s hand and his back, he went inside until Faes appeared. The Leicester center-back saved on the line for 1-0.

The visitors continued to dominate, but with great difficulty in hurting an always competitive Sweden. Olsen saved a long but complicated header from Theate and the wings were presented as the only way to hurt the Swedes. That’s where the first came, thanks to a center from Lukebakio that Lukaku finished off with a header.

The second half started and soon Belgium scored again to, although it did not seem like it, sentence the game. And once again Lukebakio appeared on the right, with an individual game in which he left his mark and put a back pass so strong that Lukaku just had to be there for the ball to bounce into the goal. Without Hazard, Belgium needs new references and Lukebakio has presented his candidacy.

With the game already very difficult, and with practically no chances for any team, Ibrahimovic jumped onto the field. At 41 years and five months old, Zlatan beats Dino Zoff as the oldest footballer to play in a European qualifying round. Another record, this one from 1983, which the Swede manages to add to his impressive career.

Lukaku also added a third goal to his double in the 83rd minute. Again, as in the second, the Inter striker used his scoring nose to take advantage of a perfect play by Bakayoko, leaving two rivals, and taking the ball home.
