Stockholm's Friends Arena was the venue where The Mighty Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a ridiculous bicycle kick against England last November, and fans at AIK's home stadium witnessed yet another beautiful overhead volley on Sunday.

AIK were drawing 2-2 in the 74th minute of their league tie with Halmstad BK when Nigerian striker Kennedy Igboananike connected with a cross from the right in spectacular fashion. The 2013 Swedish Allsvenskan is only six games old, but this powerful bicycle kick is already being lined up as a goal of the season contender.

Unfortunately, Igboananike's goal wasn't enough to earn the Gnaget all three points, as the visitors equalized in the 90th minute. Way to put a dampener on things, Halmstad.
