Ibrahimovic joins Ronaldo, Messi in 500 club with outrageous goal

Ibrahimovic joins Ronaldo, Messi in 500 club with outrageous goal

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.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players with 500 or more senior club and worldwide goals after scoring an eye-catching effort during LA Galaxy's defeat by Toronto.

There have been many memorable goals in the Swede's career and the 500th was right up there as he joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only active players to reach the milestone.




That goal seemed to inspire the Galaxy as they completed a remarkable turn around to pull level at 3-3 midway through the second half, although Toronto regained the lead. "I was close to the goal".

"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.

"It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it". Jonathan Osorio's 75th-minute go-ahead goal halted a three-goal Galaxy comeback and helped give Toronto some much needed points in their playoff push. "It is an incredible achievement", said Galaxy coach Dominic Kinnear of Ibrahimovic's goal. "I probably have more goals than the guys on the field have games together".
