Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored an incredible goal during match-winning LA Galaxy debut

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Last week, Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed that he had left Manchester United and signed for Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy.

The Swedish legend won two trophies at Man United, scoring 29 goals in 53 games, but never really got going again after suffering serious knee ligament damage back in April.

However, the self-proclaimed "Conqueror of Europe" has marked his arrival in American football by scoring a quite incredible long-range goal against Los Angeles FC.

The mercurial striker came on for his debut in the 71st-minute, with his new team 3-1 down, but after Chris Pontius pulled one back, Zlatan announced himself to the United States.

Ibra scores incredible 40-yard goal

After a long ball was cleared by an LA Galaxy defender, Ibrahimovic pounced on a tussle between two other players in which they both failed to control the ball.

After correctly reading the situation, the technically gifted star fired home an outrageous volley from the best part of 40 yards out - check out Ibra's amazing strike in the video below:

No matter what you think about Ibrahimovic's personality, no one can doubt his footballing ability and he's proved his worth in Sweden, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, France and England.


Ibra scores LA derby winner

That world-class goal levelled the scores at 3-3, but the 36-year-old wasn't done there as he linked up with captain Ashley Cole to dramatically win the LA derby in the 91st-minute.

The "Lion" managed to head in the ex-England international's cross from the left-wing to give Galaxy a 4-3 advantage and send fans inside the StubHub Center absolutely wild.


After marking his debut with two goals in 19 minutes, it's almost a guarantee that Ibrahimovic will start LA Galaxy's next match against Sporting Kansas City next weekend.
