Must-See Goal: Zlatan Ibrahimovic


Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the 500th career goal for club and country of his career in the only way Zlatan could have.

Ibrahimovic scored on a roundhouse kick volley from a Jonathan dos Santos pass in the 43rd minute to reach the milestone in a 5-3 loss to Toronto FC. The goal puts him in the same company as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only active players to find the back of the net 500 times.

The goal gave Ibrahimovic his 17th goal for the season in 22 matches for the LA Galaxy, putting him second behind Atlanta United’s Josef Martinez in the Golden Boot race.


  1. It is amazing to me that someone that big can be as flexible as a contortionist and be so skilled. When it comes to spectacular goals, he may have no peer. BTW, in today’s LA Times they had a table showing how many goals he scored with each club he has been with and his most productive period was when he was with PSG. He scored 156 goals in 180 games. Another interesting fact is that he did it between the ages of 30 and 34, a time when a lot of strikers are on the downside of their careers.
