Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday brought his career goals tally across the club and international career to 500 goals with a sensational strike for LA Galaxy against Major Soccer League match against Toronto FC. With his side trailing 3-0 in the second half, in the first half, Ibrahimovic used his taekwondo skills to direct a ball inside the back of the net, with a roundhouse spinning kick after a long pass from Jonathan dos Santos set him up inside the six-yard box.
Ibrahimovic’s goal not only took his career goals tally to 500, it also inspired his side to take the match to level terms with a 3-3 scoreline in the middle of the second half. Unfortunately, it was not enough to earn Galaxy a point as Toronto scored two late goals to pick up the 5-3 win. The former Manchester United striker became the third current active player, only after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to score 500 career goals. “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.
