Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scored His 500th Professional Goal In Absolutely Ridiculous Fashion

It was Ibrahimovic's 500th goal of a glorious career and it triggered a Galaxy comeback, scoring another two goals to level the match.

It took Ibrahimovic's season tally to 17 goals and the former Manchester United star added: "I was close to the goal".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday brought his career goals tally across the club and worldwide career to 500 goals with a sensational strike for LA Galaxy against Major Soccer League match against Toronto FC. Ibrahimovic swept his right leg up, poking the ball past Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono with a shot that bounced off the right post for the score, cutting the Galaxy's deficit to 3-1.

In action for LA Galaxy against Toronto, Ibrahimovic turned home Jonathan Santos' chipped pass with an acrobatic roundhouse kick.

Either side of those two goals, Ibrahimovic was also involved in a confrontation with US global, Michael Bradley. Since then, the former Swedish global has scored 17 goals for the MLS side in 22 appearances. "I probably have more goals than the guys on the field have games together".

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

"It is an incredible achievement", said Galaxy coach Dominic Kinnear of Ibrahimovic's goal.
