WATCH: Zlatan Ibrahimovic's bicycle kick wins FIFA goal of the year

By Mike Singer | CBSSports.com

Along with FIFA's announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo as the Ballon d'Or winner, the sport's governing body also announced its goal of the year on Monday.

And unlike the player of the year contest (Lionel Messi won the last four years), the goal of the year was nearly indisputable.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored four goals in a 4-2 friendly victory over England, but it was his last goal, which came during stoppage time, that ultimately earned him the 2013 Puskas Award for Goal of the Year.

Ibrahimovic took a volley off England's goalie and was well outside the box when he attempted this ridiculous bicycle kick.

As former MLS soccer player Jimmy Conrad tweeted:

Fortunately, Conrad doesn't have to go to any extreme measures.
