Ibrahimovic gives fans 'Zlatan' -- and MLS its greatest game ever

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Los Angeles Galaxy's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, of Sweden, celebrates his debut goal during the second half of an MLS soccer match against the Los Angeles FC Saturday, March 31, 2018, in Carson, Calif.

A Daniel Steres own goal would make it 3-0 to FC at the Stubhub Center before the Galaxy struck back in an awesome 15 minute spell through goals from Sebastian Lleget, Chris Pontius and then Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

In the 77th minute, Ibrahimović scored a stunning, long range half volley, before nodding home the winning goal deep into stoppage time.

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. "I was just waiting to come in because when you're losing 3-0 the adrenaline is pumping even more because you want to be able to do something, help the team, especially when they're in a hard situation".

"I felt like I played 40 games for my 20 minutes", Ibrahimovic said.

A see-through galaxy questions the need for dark matter
Since there's some normal matter here, any version of modified gravity would have that matter produce dark-matter-like effects. The researchers then set about measuring the movements of the clusters as a way to estimate the galaxy's total mass.

Ibrahimovic replaced Sebastian Lletget in the 71st minute shortly after chants of "We want Zlatan" started in earnest. So I gave them Zlatan.

Ibrahimovic, who announced his switch to the MLS last month has maintained his wonderful record of scoring on his debut.

"Ibrahimovic is the ideal definition of a guy who always dares to be brilliant", Schmid said.

Ibrahimovic's victor was the final act of a thrilling first ever derby between the Galaxy and expansion side LAFC, who had surged into a 3-0 lead early in the second half after two goals from Carlos Vela and an own goal from Daniel Steres. If you do that, you can pull off things.

Carlos Vela's curler into the top left corner in the fifth minute gave LAFC an early lead. But an own goal by a Galaxy player had compounded their problems as their hopes of levelling the game looked bleak.
