Football great Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 500th career goal over the weekend during his team’s fixture against Toronto FC. In true Zlatan style, the footballer used his signature acrobatics, seeing a kind-of-karate-kick strike to secure his landmark goal. Even though LA Galaxy went on to lose 5-3 against Toronto, this had no impact in dampening Zlatan’s mood. “It’s not the first time I’ve gotten a standing ovation from the away team,” he said, after Toronto fans applauded his stunning strike. “Obviously, it’s not good to lose … but I’m happy for Toronto because they’ll be remembered as my 500th victim.”

Ibrahimovic retired from international competition following the 2016 EURO Cup. The 36-year-old has participated in the 2002 and 2006 World Cups scoring 62 goals in 116 games for his country. Ibrahimovic left Manchester United to join LA Galaxy and has made a great start to his career in the States. Take a look at his goal and Internet reactions, including messages from Paul Pogba and David Beckham, below.
