Zlatan leads LA Galaxy to a 4-3 win in MLS debut
It has just been 2 nights since the Swedish legend was mobbed at the airport by fans celebrating his arrival in the Major Soccer League. He recently confirmed that he was destined to move to LA Galaxy but had to put that on hold in order to help out Mourinho at Manchester United. He has already started paying off that debt of keeping the MLS waiting by scoring a stunner on his debut. Carlos Vela bossed the match early on as he scored a brace for newly formed club Los Angeles FC while Zlatan was watching from the bench. A Steres own goal made it 3-0 LAFC and Galaxy were looking they were going to lose. It was only after Lletget had reduced the deficit to 3-1 when they called on Zlatan to produce a miracle and save them from a huge embarrassment. Suddenly the team was playing to his strengths and putting the ball over in the box and his teammate Pontius benefited from that as he scored the 2nd goal for Galaxy. Zlatan then took the matters into his own hands when he scored a “worldie”. He connected a volley from 40 yards out and smashed it into the net on the 77th minute to make it 3-3 in the derby. The player who calls himself the God of football then scored the decider on the 90th minute from a cross into the box. He made no mistake as he jumped above the defender and headed it past the on rushing goalkeeper to confirm the win for LA Galaxy. What a way to introduce himself in the MLS. These goals have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored in all his first official games for the clubs he has played for. What a phenomenon.
