Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores with roundhouse kick to bring up 500th career goal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic simply doesn't score ordinary goals, but even by his standards, his 500th career goal was special.

Ibrahimovic, 36, has made 747 appearances while scoring 438 goals for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris St-Germain, United and LA Galaxy.

Ibrahomivic scored in the 43rd minute on an audacious one-touch volley, finishing a long, aerial through ball from Jonathan Dos Santos. He also scored 62 goals for Swedish national side.

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. The match against Toronto FC resulted in a grand total of eight goals, and while the Canadians triumphed 5-3, Ibrahimović's taekwondo goal was certainly the highlight of the 90 minutes.

Oil firm on tighter US outlook, but…
This news was being supported by the unknown, or the compliance with the US sanctions on Iran . Official weekly government data will be published by the U.S.

Ibrahimovic joined Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the third active player to score 500 goals between club and country on Saturday. "I have more goals than he has games".

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim", said Ibrahimovic. "It came from a cross and I turned around and I hit it".

Ibrahimovic joined the Galaxy in March on transfer from English Premier League's Manchester United.

Following the goal, fans on Twitter were just as stunned as the commentary team at Ibrahimovic's incredible acrobatic effort.
