The Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the oldest scorer in the history of Serie A yesterday when he scored for Milan against Udinese, in a match of the twenty-seventh day that is played at the Dacia Arena stadium.
At 41 years and 166 days old, the Scandinavian footballer scored a penalty, on the second attempt. He executed a shot from eleven meters that the local goalkeeper Marco Silvestri guessed, but the referee Daniele Doveri ordered the maximum penalty to be repeated. Ibrahimovic launched it again, which did not miss.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, also the oldest player to be captain with Milan, became the oldest footballer to score in the Italian League after surpassing Alessandro Costacurta, who at 41 years and 25 days old scored in a match that his team, also Milan, lost against Udinese in May 2007.
