Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores to reach 500 goals for club and country

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stunned the world of football with one of the most outrageous goals in his illustrious career.

Victor Vazquez opened the scoring on five minutes, Jozy Altidore doubled the lead in the 16th minute and then Sebastian Giovinco found the back of the net in the 36th minute to give Toronto FC a 3-0 lead.

The striker now plies his trade in the U.S. after playing for an array of elite clubs in Europe such as Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG and Manchester United, chalking up goals that brought him a championship title in nearly every league he's played in.

The unbelievable finish left football fans gobsmacked on social media.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores his 500th career goal with a stunning flick for the LA Galaxy. He has now scored 19 goals in 21 career MLS games.

Ibrahimovic has netted 438 goals across 747 appearances in his club career with Malmö FF, Ajax, Juventus, FC Internazionale, FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris-Saint Germain, Manchester United and the LA Galaxy, adding 62 goals in 114 senior appearances for Sweden. He also played for the Swedish worldwide team.
