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

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores his 500th career goal with a stunning flick for the LA Galaxy.

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

Juventus and Portugal's Ronaldo leads the way from Barcelona and Argentina's Messi, with both players having scored more than 600 senior club and worldwide goals.

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.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stunned the world of football with one of the most outrageous goals in his illustrious career.

The former Manchester United star brought up his latest astonishing milestone with a typically Zlatan-esque effort, performing a graceful pirouette before connecting with a lofted pass and slamming the ball into the net with a karate kick style volley.

"Obviously it's not good to lose ... but I'm happy for Toronto because they'll be remembered as my 500th victim", he was quoted as saying to TSN after the match.

"I was close to the goal". It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax.

Jay Chapman added an insurance goal in stoppage time with a low shot to the corner.

Zlatan left United at the start of the 2018 season to join Galaxy.

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