Ibrahimovic proclaims himself the 'God of Goals' after 500th goal

Zlatan Ibrahimovich proclaimed himself the 'God of Goals' after scoring for the 500th time in his professional career.
The veteran Swedish striker achieved the milestone with an outrageous roundhouse kick volley but it wasn't enough to prevent the Los Angeles Galaxy losing 5-3 at Toronto.
And Ibrahimovic took to Twitter afterwards to celebrate, posting a film poster style graphic that read 'Zlatan: God of Goals' along with the caption '500'.

'Obviously it's not good to lose... but I'm happy for Toronto because they'll be remembered as my 500th victim,' said the 36-year-old on TSN.
Ibrahimovic now has 17 goals in 22 appearances for the Major League Soccer side, whom he joined from Manchester United earlier this year.
In addition, Ibrahimovic scored 18 goals for Malmo, 48 for Ajax, 26 for Juventus, 66 for Inter Milan, 22 for Barcelona, 56 for AC Milan, 156 for Paris Saint-Germain, 29 for United and 62 for Sweden in a glittering career.
In reaching 500 career goals, Ibrahimovic joins Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players to have reached that figure in club and international play.

His spectacular goal came with the Galaxy three goals down after first-half strikes by Toronto's Victor Vazquez Solsona, Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco.
It inspired a comeback by the visitors, with Ibrahimovic's intervention followed by Ola Kamara and Rolf Feltscher goals.
However, Toronto rallied, with late goals by Jonathan Osorio and Jay Chapman settling the eight-goal thriller in their favour.
The Galaxy remain eighth in the MLS Western Conference standings.
