The 36-year-old Swede scored the 500th goal of his seemingly neverending professional career in spectacular fashion on Sunday (NZ time).

Despite the world class goal, Galaxy went down 5-3 to Toronto in a classic.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday brought his career goals tally across the club and global career to 500 goals with a sensational strike for LA Galaxy against Major Soccer League match against Toronto FC.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim".

Only Barcelona star Messi and Juventus ace Ronaldo boast more goals among active players than the former Manchester United, PSG, Juventus and Ajax star, who joined up with the MLS side earlier in the season.

With the Canadian side leading 3-0, the Swedish forward received a pass from the Mexican midfielder Jonathan dos Santos and scored an extraordinary "karate-kick" goal with his right foot.

"I was close to the goal". It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it.

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 thinks he is the philosopher of football, ' Ibrahimovic said of Bradley in the LA Galaxy locker room. "The guy is a great goal scorer and it is a memorable one for him for many reasons".
