Galaxy's Ibrahimovic scores 500th career goal

Galaxy's Ibrahimovic scores 500th career goal

After starting his career at Malmo in Sweden, Ibrahimovic has gone on to score goals for Dutch giants Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and United.

The 36-year-old Swede scored the 500th goal of his seemingly neverending professional career in spectacular fashion on Sunday (NZ time).

Toronto eventually won the game 5-3.

Escaping the attention of his marker, the former Manchester United striker volleyed home Jonathan Santos' chipped pass with a roundhouse kick.

Juventus and Portugal's Ronaldo leads the way from Barcelona and Argentina's Messi, with both players having scored more than 600 senior club and worldwide goals.




"I was close to the goal".

"Obviously it's not good to lose ... but I'm happy for Toronto because they'll be remembered as my 500th victim", he was quoted as saying to TSN after the match. "It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax", said Ibrahimovic, who has five game winners for Los Angeles. It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it.

Following the goal, fans on Twitter were just as stunned as the commentary team at Ibrahimovic's incredible acrobatic effort.

Jonathan Osorio's 75th-minute go-ahead goal halted a three-goal Galaxy comeback and helped give Toronto some much needed points in their playoff push.

It was Ibrahimovic's 17th goal in 18 league appearances for the MLS side as his remarkable career continues. In doing this, Zlatan, known for scoring the most outrageous goals, added one more to his collection.
