Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday brought his career goals tally across the club and worldwide career to 500 goals with a sensational strike for LA Galaxy against Major Soccer League match against Toronto FC.

Ibrahomivic scored in the 43rd minute on an audacious one-touch volley, finishing a long, aerial through ball from Jonathan Dos Santos. He has now scored 19 goals in 21 career MLS games.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn't do anything by halves, so his 500th goal in professional soccer was always going to be ridiculous.

After starting his career at Malmo in Sweden, Ibrahimovic has gone on to score goals for Dutch giants Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and United.

At worldwide level for Sweden, he made 114 senior appearance and scored 62 goals.

Galaxy were 3-0 down at the time and, though they mounted a comeback, were eventually beaten 5-3. "I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim", said Ibrahimovic. Since then, the former Swedish global has scored 17 goals for the MLS side in 22 appearances.

Former Manchester United striker Ibrahimovic celebrated the milestone thanks to an astonishing roundhouse finish - the 36-year-old spinning and volleying with the outside of his foot. It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax.
