Zlatan shines on MLS debut

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

The Swedish superstar forward kicked off his career with LA Galaxy in style, netting two spectacular goals in just 20 minutes to beat Los Angeles FC 4-3 in his debut in US Major League Soccer on Saturday.

The Sky Sports pundit told Super Sunday he had been left impressed by the Swedish striker's sensational half-volley to pull Galaxy level from 3-0 down six minutes after he came on, but that it was a outcome of his self-confidence and ability.

The 36-year-old Swedish star lashed in a sumptuous 40-yard volleyed lob to level the score at 3-3 before heading home the victor in injury time to spark pandemonium at the StubHub Center.

The Swede then headed home Ashley Cole's cross in injury time to put Galaxy ahead in an extraordinary finale that lived up to the hype surrounding the veteran striker's arrival from Manchester United. "They were pushing me and I was giving back".

"Someone texted me straight away, I went to check the goal and I was like 'yeah, that's just Zlatan.' I'm not trying to play it down, it's outstanding and awesome, but that's just Zlatan".

"The fans were demanding something and I gave them Zlatan".

Galaxy seems to lack dark matter, stumping astronomers
The galaxy is about 65 million light-years away in the constellation of Cetus and is about the same size as the Milky Way. The galaxy was studied by many telescopes (Jemini and Kek Hawaii, Space Hubble , etc.) to cross-check the results.

The Swede's second goal in extra time sealed a 4-3 win for his new side.

"Ibrahimovic is the flawless definition of a guy who always dares to be brilliant".

It was a stunning reversal after the first meeting between the first-year expansion team and five-time MLS Cup winners was a rout in favor of the newcomers in the first half, with Carlos Vela scoring twice. If you do that, you can pull off things.

Ibrahimovic then popped up with a victor in the 91st minute.

Zlatan arrived in Los Angeles after being released by Manchester United on March 22.

Vela scored in the 5th minute, curling a shot from outside the penalty box in to give LAFC a 1-0 lead.
