Sweden striker Alexander Isak left fans in awe on Friday afternoon with an outrageous dribble from his own half against Slovakia.
The Real Sociedad striker was superb in his side’s opening group game as they drew 0-0 with Spain in Seville.
Isak was comfortably the most exciting player on the pitch and was hailed as ‘the new Zlatan’ following a wonderful performance up top.
And he showed what a special talent he is yet again with a Man of the Match performance in Sweden’s 1-0 victory over Slovakia in St Petersburg.
In the second half, the 21-year-old rinsed a whole host of opposition defenders and left them on their backsides.

He received the ball in his own half and displayed incredibly quick feet, pace, power and skill to beat several men before forcing Martin Dubravka into a smart save after advancing into the box.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward has just come off the back of a stellar 17-goal season that won him the La Liga Young Player of the Year and is evidently full of confidence at the moment.
The aforementioned clip was one of six dribbles Isak completed during the Group E fixture – more than any other player at the European Championship so far.
6 – Alexander Isak completed six dribbles against Slovakia; the most by a player in a game at EURO 2020 so far, and the most by a Swedish player in a game at the tournament since Tomas Brolin at EURO 1992 (7 v Denmark). Slalom. #EURO2020 pic.twitter.com/Kjb0vFeNGH
