Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn’t do anything by halves, so his 500th goal in professional soccer was always going to be ridiculous.
Playing for LA Galaxy against Toronto FC today he notched up the milestone more or less exactly as you expect, with a spinning, backward, karate kick back heel volley — not bad mobility for a 36 year old!
Watch it here:
STOP IT ZLATAN.
Despite the world class goal, Galaxy went down 5-3 to Toronto in a classic.
Toronto scored the first three goals inside 36 minutes, before Zlatan’s cracker inspired a Galaxy comeback.
They dragged it back to 3-3 with half an hour to play before late Toronto goals sealed it.
