Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores 500th career goal in spectacular fashion

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores 500th career goal in spectacular fashion

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

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.

Toronto's Jonathan Osorio scored with 15 minutes remaining before substitute Jay Chapman sealed the points in the fourth minute of stoppage time. He also played for the Swedish global team.

The former Manchester United striker became the third current active player, only after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to score 500 career goals.

"I was close to the goal".

The path of Hurricane Florence has changed since Cooper made that statement Tuesday. Some fluctuations in strength will be possible through Thursday morning.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim", said Ibrahimovic. "It came from a cross and I turned around and I hit it". "I probably have more goals than the guys on the field have games together".

Ibrahimovic, 36, has made 747 appearances while scoring 438 goals for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris St-Germain, United and LA Galaxy.

The striker now plies his trade in the USA after playing for an array of elite clubs in Europe such as Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG and Manchester United, chalking up goals that brought him a championship title in nearly every league he's played in.

"It is an incredible achievement", said Galaxy coach Dominic Kinnear of Ibrahimovic's goal.
