Zlatan - who also scored this perhaps unprecedented style of goal for his 500th career marker - was asked about Bradley.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stunned the world of football with one of the most outrageous goals in his illustrious career.

Fomer Sweden International Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a stunning goal in the MLS on Sunday.


They did succumb to a 5-3 defeat in the end which soured the story a little, but this goal will live longer in the memory than that result.

"Obviously, it's not good to lose. but I'm happy for Toronto because they'll be remembered as my 500th victim", Ibrahimović told The Sports Network (via ESPN).

Interestingly, Ibrahimovic's goal arrived after LA Galaxy went down 3-0 with first-half goals from the trio of Toronto's Victor Vazquez Solsona, Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco.


The Swede joins Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only active players to reach the milestone, which includes goals for club and country. It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax.

Ibrahimovic was PSG's top goalscorer with 156 goals before Edinson Cavani broke his record in January.

"It came from a cross and I turned around and hit it".


Just look at Michael Bradley's face after the goal, because it says it all. "I probably have more goals than the guys on the field have games together".
