Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players with 500 or more senior club and global goals after scoring an eye-catching effort during LA Galaxy's defeat by Toronto.

Escaping the attention of his marker, the former Manchester United striker volleyed home Jonathan Santos' chipped pass with a roundhouse kick.

Ibrahimovic's goal not only took his career goals tally to 500, it also inspired his side to take the match to level terms with a 3-3 scoreline in the middle of the second half.

At global level for Sweden, he made 114 senior appearance and scored 62 goals. Unfortunately, it was not enough to earn Galaxy a point as Toronto scored two late goals to pick up the 5-3 win.

Ibrahimovic joined Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the third active player to score 500 goals between club and country on Saturday. It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax. "I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim", said Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.
