Steven Gerrard admits that Zlatan Ibrahimovic was unplayable after watching the Sweden striker score four times against England tonight.

England captain Steven Gerrard has admitted that Zlatan Ibrahimovic produced a performance his team could not deal with in Stockholm tonight

Ibrahimovic scored four times to help Sweden reverse a 2-1 deficit against Roy Hodgson's side.

Gerrard believes that the Paris Saint-Germain striker scored one of the best goals he has ever seen with his final strike of the match.

The Three Lions skipper also insisted that his side can take a number of positives from their final friendly of 2012.

He told ITV Sport: "Ibrahimovic's performance was certainly world class. Credit to him, he scored one of the best goals I've ever seen live. It was his night.

"From our point of view, there were a lot of young lads making their debuts and they did well. We will take a lot from this game. We collapsed a little bit near the end, but there were plenty of positives."

The 32-year-old saw Ibrahimovic steal the headlines on a night where the Liverpool talisman earned his 100th England cap.
