Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scored His 500th Professional Goal In Absolutely Ridiculous Fashion

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.

"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. He has 17 goals and eight assists in 22 appearances with the Galaxy.

The outspoken Swedish striker whipped in the goal with a roundhouse kick on the volley from Jonathan dos Santos' pass in the 43rd minute to reach the milestone. Although Galaxy managed to level the game up at 3-3, two more late goals for the Canadian side saw them claim a 5-3 win.
