Zlatan Ibrahimovic made history on Saturday as he scored the 500th goal of his career for the club and country. However, his stupendous goal was not enough to lift the Los Angeles Galaxy to a win over Toronto FC as they lost the match 3-5.
With his LA Galaxy side trailing 3-0 in the first half against Toronto, Ibrahimovic directed the ball in off the post with an incredible, roundhouse spinning kick from a Jonathan dos Santos ball forward just before halftime.
The 36-year-old has now become only the third active footballer to reach the milestone, joining Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Obviously it’s not good to lose … but I’m happy for Toronto because they’ll be remembered as my 500th victim,” Ibrahimovic told TSN after the game.
Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden while the rest have come while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Galaxy. He left Manchester United to join the Galaxy at the start of the 2018 season and now has 17 goals in 22 appearances for LA.
