We were reminded of this in small hours of Sunday morning as the former Swedish worldwide brought up his 500th career goal in spectacular fashion during LA Galaxy's game with Toronto.

With his LA Galaxy side trailing 3-0 in the first half against Toronto, Ibrahimovic directed the ball in off the post with a incredible, roundhouse spinning kick from a Jonathan dos Santos long ball just before half time.

He has now scored 19 goals in 21 career MLS games.

"I don't know how many have scored 500 goals in their career, but I am one of them and if would feel nicer if we win the game but still, I did it so there is nothing I will hide from".

Buoyed by the goal, Galaxy drew level at 3-3 on 58 minutes but goals from Jonathan Osorio and Jay Chapman gave Toronto the victory.
