Making it to 500 career goals is an amazing feat for any striker and even if the ball went in off their backside to get to that mark, most forwards in the world would take it. However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was never going to settle for something that.
Like most of the big Swede’s career, you knew he was going to make the milestone unforgettable and he did just that on Saturday night.
Zlatan’s moment of magic come as his LA Galaxy trailed 3-0 close to half time in their MLS game away to Toronto FC.
The former Man United man latched onto a dinked ball into the box and proceeded to swivel his body into a roundhouse kick to spectacularly net from close range. The goal was so good that even the Toronto fans in the stadium felt they had to applaud it.
That wasn’t the end of the scoring as Galaxy managed to pull it back to 3-3 on the hour mark, but they would eventually fall to a 5-3 defeat in Canada. It’s Zlatan’s goal that people are talking about this morning though and you can see it for yourself thanks to the MLS YouTube channel below:
