Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores stunning goal in MLS debut

Man Utd boss Mourinho: LA Galaxy will enjoy Ibrahimovic

Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his arrival in Major League Soccer with two goals on his debut, including an injury-time victor, as the Los Angeles Galaxy fought back from 3-0 down to beat Los Angeles FC 4-3 yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Ibrahimovic, 36, showed little signs of rustiness when he helped his team to come back from 3-0 behind, scoring the equaliser and winning goal for Galaxy on Saturday, reports Efe.

The home crowd then roared in appreciation in the 71st minute when Ibrahimovic made his entrance from the substitutes bench. And, after he was involved in the build-up for Chris Pontius' header, the Swede struck.

Because the USA operates a salary cap, Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the galaxy will earn only $ 1.5 million per year, which is 18 times less than his earnings in England.

The Swede who was making his debut for the Galaxy was brought off the bench to score a stunning volley to bring his side level against Los Angeles FC before also going on to bag the victor.

"Ibrahimovic is the flawless definition of a guy who always dares to be brilliant", Schmid said. But instead it was Ibrahimovic who was determined to have the last word.




Ibrahimovic as a free agent he moved to the MLS from "Manchester United".

Galaxy are now up to third in the MLS Western Conference after just four matches of the season.

"The first ever derby, who comes off the bench?"

Carlos Vela's curler into the top left corner in the fifth minute gave LAFC an early lead.

Rossi nearly doubled the LAFC lead in the 11th minute, flashing a low angled shot wide of the post. Not bad for a 20-plus minute debut.

An unfortunate own goal from Daniel Steres put Bob Bradley's side 3-0 up, before a defensive error allowed Sebastian Lletget to pull one back.
