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

We were reminded of this in small hours of Sunday morning as the former Swedish global brought up his 500th career goal in spectacular fashion during LA Galaxy's game with Toronto.

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.

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.

Despite the world class goal, Galaxy went down 5-3 to Toronto in a classic.

Liverpool survived a late scare to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Wembley Stadium. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.

Ibrahimovic joined Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the only active players with 500 career goals for club and country. "I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim", said Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic's goal was greeted by a standing ovation from the opposition fans but the Swede dismissed the gesture as a run of the mill response to his customary brilliance.

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 reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax.
