Not another player in the world — maybe in the history of the game — could have scored quite like this.

Of course Zlatan Ibrahimović had to score his 500th goal in style.

The LA Galaxy forward didn’t just knock in Jonathan dos Santos’ pass for a simple volley. He went nearly sideways and backwards with a roundhouse kick to reach the milestone.

Ibrahimović’s goal helped the Galaxy eventually tie the game at 3-3 after Toronto jumped out to a 3-0 first half lead. But LA would eventually lose the game 5-3.

That didn’t stop Ibrahimović from celebrating himself though. After the game, the Swedish striker took to Twitter, calling himself the “God of Goals.”


He’s probably already planning on how to top — and celebrate — goal 500.
