Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores 500th career goal

Ibrahimovic's goal was greeted by a standing ovation from the opposition fans but the Swede dismissed the gesture as a run of the mill response to his customary brilliance.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim". Despite reaching the milestone, this proved to be a disappointing night for the former Swedish global and his teammates.

Ibrahomivic scored in the 43rd minute on an audacious one-touch volley, finishing a long, aerial through ball from Jonathan Dos Santos. Unfortunately, it was not enough to earn Galaxy a point as Toronto scored two late goals to pick up the 5-3 win.

Prior to signing with Los Angeles, Ibrahimovic had spent time with Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester United. "I probably have more goals than the guys on the field have games together".

"It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it".

Toronto scored the first three goals inside 36 minutes, before Zlatan's cracker inspired a Galaxy comeback.

Only Barcelona star Messi and Juventus ace Ronaldo boast more goals among active players than the former Manchester United, PSG, Juventus and Ajax star, who joined up with the MLS side earlier in the season.

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