MLS remembers Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 500th career goal
The Swedish veteran striker scored his 500th career goal on 15 September 2018 while playing with the Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic left his mark in Major League Soccer and his goals will never be forgotten. In his debut game with the Los Angeles Galaxy he scored a brace and led the team’s comeback to defeat LAFC 4-3 at the Dignity Health Sports Park.
MLS still celebrates Zlatan
On 15 September 2018 Ibrahimovic scored his 500th career goal in the Los Angeles Galaxy’s 5-3 loss to Toronto FC. At that time he was 36-years-old and he joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players to reach that mark.
So Major League Soccer used their social media to remember the unbelievable back heel goal he scored at the BMO stadium in Canada. He only played in the league for 2 years and in 2020 he decided to return to Europe to play with AC Milan, where he currently is.
“I am happy for Toronto because they will always be remembered to be the victim of my 500th worldwide goal,” said Zlatan Ibrahimovic during the post-game interview when asked about his accomplishment.
