Red-hot Ibrahimovic deals old club Ajax Euro blow

Former Ajax striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic dealt the Dutch side a major Champions League blow on Tuesday when he hit AC Milan’s equaliser in a 1-1 Group G draw.

Despite being without the injured Ronaldinho, old Ajax favourites Clarence Seedorf and Ibrahimovic did start and they combined in the 37th minute to pull their side level.

Seedorf released the big striker, who controlled the ball on his chest before firing past Maarten Stekelenburg from close range.

It was Ibrahimovic’s third goal in the tournament this season, having scored twice in the opening 2-0 win over Auxerre.

Ajax, who were defeated 2-0 by Real Madrid in their opener, had taken the lead in the 23rd minute, with Uruguay international striker Luis Suarez playing a crucial role.

Suarez missed the defeat in Madrid but he made up for lost time when he cheekily pushed the ball between the legs of veteran defender Alessandro Nesta out on the left.

He then played a low ball across the area for Moroccan international Mounir El Hamdaoui to turn and shoot past Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati.
