His tally of club goals now stands at 438 including strikes for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, PSG, AC Milan and Manchester United.

The former Manchester United striker became the third current active player, only after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to score 500 career goals.

Toronto eventually won the game 5-3.

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

But his 500th career goal in the U.S. left fans incredulous as to how he pulled it off, completing a roundhouse kick to convert an assist from Jonathan dos Santsos to pull one back for the California team after they went 3-0 down.

He has now scored 19 goals in 21 career MLS games.

Florence's 'violent grind' leaves at least four dead in Carolinas
By midnight, areas of coastal North Carolina were experiencing life-threatening storm surge, the National Weather Service said. It's forecast to gradually turn toward the northeast on Friday and then accelerate northeastward over the weekend.

"I was close to the goal", he said.

Following the goal, fans on Twitter were just as stunned as the commentary team at Ibrahimovic's incredible acrobatic effort.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim".

Jonathan Osorio's 75th-minute go-ahead goal halted a three-goal Galaxy comeback and helped give Toronto some much needed points in their playoff push.

Aside from Ibrahimovic's landmark goal, the match was also noteworthy for the heated confrontation which took place between the 36-year-old and Michael Bradley, the son of LA Galaxy manager Bob Bradley.
