Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlataned his 16th and 17th Ligue 1 goals of 2013/14 on Sunday evening, contributing to Paris Saint-Germain's 5-0 rout over Nantes and helping the league leaders stay five points ahead of closest rivals Monaco.

The Mighty Swede confidently slotted home his fifth penalty of the season in the 36th minute and followed up in the second half when a pack of Nantes defenders stood idly by as he connected with a loose ball.

Ibra is famous for his flying kicks — which sometimes result in award-winning goals but more often result in injured teammates — and he celebrated his brace by punishing the corner flag for having the audacity to be an inanimate object positioned in the corner of the field.

Usually, a corner flag will spring right back up when it is touched, but this one stayed flat on the ground until it heard the sound of Zlatan's car pulling away from the stadium.
