Zlatan Ibrahimović joined a select band of player with his winner for Manchester United against Zorya Luhansk in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.

Already the first player to score for six different sides in the UEFA Champions League, Ibrahimović has become only the third to get goals for seven teams in UEFA club competition. He emulates former Juventus team-mate Adrian Mutu and fellow Scandinavian John Carew, who was the first to achieve the feat when he scored for Aston Villa at Odense on 19 July 2008 in the UEFA Intertoto Cup.

UEFA.com compares the three's numbers and sees where Ibrahimović's tally of 52 UEFA club competition goals leaves him on the all-time list.
