Swedish football icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted his 500th career goal in football on Saturday for LA Galaxy against Toronto FC - and it has to be seen to be believed. 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.

Over his illustrious club career, he also has scored for Paris Saint-Germain (156 goals), Inter Milan (66), AC Milan (56), Ajax (48), Manchester United (29), Juventus (26), Barcelona (22), and Malmo (18).

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.

Ibrahimovic joined Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the only active players with 500 career goals for club and country.

But Jonathan Osorio put put the home side back in front and Jay Chapman rounded out a 5-3 win for the defending MLS champion.

Former Manchester United striker Ibrahimovic celebrated the milestone thanks to an astonishing roundhouse finish - the 36-year-old spinning and volleying with the outside of his foot.
