Bin there, done that - Swedish icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic is as cool as ever as he flicks the ball in the trash can with his heel

Manchester United midfielder Pogba, 27, took on his 38-year-old former team-mate in an Instagram battle of who could pot a football most spectacularly amid the coronavirus lockdown.

And after the big flick-off the French World Cup winner declared himself the winner.

Watch their jaw-dropping clips (above) to see if you agree.

But after an unsettled, injury-hit season where Pogba has long seemed destined for Real Madrid or Juventus in the summer, you might think this is one judgement he has got spot-on.

AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic opened up with, unsurprisingly, a nonchalant little feat, spinning the ball backwards into a trash-can off his heel as he walked in the opposite direction.

It was more proof - though as ever not needed - the super-fit Swedish legend is no has-bin.

And modest as ever, Ibra posted: "@paulpogba Game over #zlatanvspogba"

Pogba cleared some spaced for his offering - a similar, backwards double-flick with the soles of his boots - but this time via a wall and into a waist-high basketball hoop,

That was Ibrahimovic slam-sunk, surely? Pogba certainly had no doubts.

First, he let off a whoop to celebrate his hoop.

So until the next challenge, Zlat's all folks!
