We have not won the cup yet, says Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic refused to get ahead of himself after firing Paris Saint-Germain into the Coupe de la Ligue final on Tuesday.

The Swede scored twice in Laurent Blanc's side's 2-1 win at Nantes, putting them ahead with a sublime effort in the fifth minute, before Olivier Veigneau gave the Ligue 1 champions a late scare with an 81st-minute strike.

But, with the game heading for extra time, Ibrahimovic netted a last-gasp winner to send PSG into April's final.

However, the former Barcelona, Milan and Inter striker is not taking anything for granted ahead of their meeting with Lyon or Troyes. 

"We are very happy with the victory," he said. "We are qualified for the final, so we are getting closer to one of our goals this season.

"We won the match, I scored two goals, but it isn't finished yet. There's still one more match to be played to win the trophy."

Coach Blanc echoed Ibrahimovic's comments, but stressed that the final must now be pushed to the back of his players' minds as they turn their focus back to the other competitions.

"We're in the final, that's great," he remarked. "But there's plenty of time to think about that one because it's not until April 19.

"Before then we have some very important matches in the championship and in the Champions League."
