Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Swedish striker scores 500th career goal in style

Zlatan nears 500-goal mark in Galaxy's El Trafico draw

Like a fine wine, Zlatan Ibrahimovic keeps getting better with age.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a sensational goal for MLS Galaxy.

Speaking afterwards, Sweden's all-time leading scorer with 62 goals told reporters: "I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim".

Playing for LA Galaxy against Toronto FC today he notched up the milestone more or less exactly as you expect, with a spinning, backward, karate kick back heel volley - not bad mobility for a 36 year old!

"I don't know how many have scored 500 goals in their career, but I am one of them and it would feel nicer if we win the game but still, I did it so there is nothing I will hide from".

Trump Continues to Deny Puerto Rico Death Toll Despite Backlash
President Donald Trump tosses paper towels into the crowd during his visit to Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria . He added that the death toll had been inflated by adding people who died of other causes.

Meanwhile, former All Whites coach Anthony Hudson suffered yet another defeat in his new job as Colorado Rapids coach. "It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax", said Ibrahimovic, who has five game winners for Los Angeles.

Ibrahimovic signed for LA Galaxy in March and has been in stunning form ever since his move from Manchester United, scoring 17 times from 18 appearances. "It came from a cross and I turned around and I hit it".

His tally of club goals now stands at 438 including strikes for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, PSG, AC Milan and Manchester United.

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