Los Angeles: Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic made history on Saturday, scoring his 500th career goal in stunning fashion but it wasn’t enough to lift the Los Angeles Galaxy to a win over Toronto FC.

The 36-year-old Ibrahimovic as always had a flair for the dramatic and he did just that in becoming the third active footballer to reach the milestone, joining Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The six-foot-five (1.95 metre) Ibrahimovic released a perfectly-timed round house kick in the 43rd minute that fooled goalkeeper Alex Bono for his 17th goal of the season.

The goal reduced the deficit to 3-1 and sparked a three-goal Galaxy rally but the defending MLS champions would go on to win 5-3 at BMO Field in Toronto.
