Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scored His 500th Professional Goal In Absolutely Ridiculous Fashion

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

Toronto had jumped out to a 3-0 first-half lead at BMO Field before Ibrahimovic's goal fueled a furious Galaxy rally that saw a tie game by the 58th minute.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday brought his career goals tally across the club and global career to 500 goals with a sensational strike for LA Galaxy against Major Soccer League match against Toronto FC.

Ibrahimovic joined Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the third active player to score 500 goals between club and country on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Zlatan and the Galaxy, a Jonathan Osorio goal in the 75th minute and another from Jay Chapman gave Toronto FC the win meaning the Galaxy slip further away from the playoffs.

"He thinks he is the philosopher of football", Ibrahimovic is quoted as saying of the former Roma midfielder by MLS after the game.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim", said Ibrahimovic.

It is a goal glut that started at Malmo and has continued with Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG and Manchester United. It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it.

In 18 league appearances with the Galaxy Ibrahimovic now has 17 goals, good for second in the league behind Atlanta United's Josef Martinez, who set the MLS single-season scoring record with his 28th goal last month. "I was just trying to hit the goal and it went in".
