Video: Watch Phillipe Mexes score a stunning Zlatan-like overhead kick

AC Milan

Phillipe Mexes has been linked with both Manchester United and Arsenal over the past few months. We wonder if their scouts have seen this yet?

Phillipe Mexes is one of the most well-known French central defenders of his generation, and last night scored his 25th career goal.

We are going to go out on a limb and say none of them will have topped the one he scored last night.

While it was closer in and not quite so out-of-the-blue as Zlatan Ibrahimovic's acrobatic effort for Sweden against England last week, the resemblances are plain to see.

It's just a shame FIFA have already made their shortlist for the Puskas Award - For the best goals in world football over the past year, because this would be a surefire contender.

And AC Milan won the game against Anderlecht 3-0, sealing qualification and a perfect night for the Italians.

You can check out the goal below...
