Zlatan Ibrahimovic simply doesn't score ordinary goals, but even by his standards, his 500th career goal was special.

But his 500th career goal in the U.S. left fans incredulous as to how he pulled it off, completing a roundhouse kick to convert an assist from Jonathan dos Santsos to pull one back for the California team after they went 3-0 down.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn't do anything by halves, so his 500th goal in professional soccer was always going to be ridiculous.

Galaxy were trailing 3-0 at the time but Ibrahimovic's goal sparked a comeback as they pulled level, before eventually falling to a 5-3 defeat.

Ibrahimovic - Sweden's all-time leading scorer with 62 goals in 116 appearances - has enjoyed an illustrious career.


He came into Saturday's game tied for second in MLS scoring with 16 goals this season.

The former Manchester United striker became the third current active player, only after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to score 500 career goals. "It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax", he said.

They dragged it back to 3-3 with half an hour to play before late Toronto goals sealed it.

Prior to signing with Los Angeles, Ibrahimovic had spent time with Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester United.
