Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the 500th goal of an incredible career as LA Galaxy were beaten by Toronto FC. Ibrahimovic swept his right leg up, poking the ball past Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono with a shot that bounced off the right post for the score, cutting the Galaxy's deficit to 3-1.

He came into Saturday's game tied for second in MLS scoring with 16 goals this season.

In his career, the 36-year-old has scored 156 goals for PSG, 66 goals for Inter Milan, 56 goals for AC Milan, 48 goals for Ajax, 29 goals for Manchester United, 26 goals for Juventus, 22 goals for Barcelona and 18 goals for Malmo. Despite equalizing the score to 3-3, the team eventually lost 5-3 on the night to the Canadian side at BMO Field and subsequently languish 8th in the Western Conference of the MLS.

A stunning spinning full volley from Ibrahimovic, who joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only active players to reach that milestone just before halftime gave the Galaxy some life. "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.

Speaking after the clash, he said: "I was close to the goal".

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

"I don't know how many have scored 500 goals in their career, but I am one of them and if would feel nicer if we win the game but still, I did it so there is nothing I will hide from".
