Zlatan Ibrahimovic MLS debut

Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his MLS arrival with two astounding goals in his debut with the LA Galaxy to help complete an epic comeback.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his arrival in MLS with two stunning goals to help the LA Galaxy comeback to win 4-3 after being down 3-0.
  • His first goal was a blast from 38 yards out, just five minutes after he took the field as a substitute in the 71st minute.
  • Ibrahimovic had only landed in Los Angeles on Thursday, and had had just one training session with his new team before taking the pitch.

"Dear Los Angeles, you're welcome."

That's how the braggadocious Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his arrival in the MLS after agreeing to join the LA Galaxy. And while some might've found such a bold proclamation unwise, it didn't take much for Zlatan, who once compared himself to God, to back up his words on the pitch.

On Saturday, the Galaxy faced off against in-city rivals LAFC in what Angeleno soccer fans had dubbed "El Trafico." Zlatan began the game on the bench for the Galaxy, and LAFC quickly jumped out to a 3-0 lead, which they held until the 60th minute.

After the Galaxy got a goal back, Zlatan took the pitch in the 71st minute facing a 3-1 deficit, just two days after landing in Los Angeles and with only one training session with his new team under his belt. It didn't matter.

Just two minutes after taking the pitch, Zlatan helped the Galaxy move forward a possession that led to a goal from teammate Chris Pontius to bring the game to 3-2.

Five minutes later, Zlatan would take the spotlight, striking a scorcher of a volley from 38 yards out to tie the game.

But Zlatan wasn't done. As the game moved to stoppage time still level, the Galaxy found an opening, with Emmanuel Boateng hitting a fine cross to Ibrahimovic, who would head the ball home for the game-winner.

It's almost impossible to imagine a better debut. In just 20 minutes of work, and after only arriving in the country 48 hours earlier, Zlatan netted two goals to help his new club comeback against their cross-town rivals.

Zlatan has arrived.
