Ibrahimovic: I didn't want to let it down this time

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovich showed his mettle in his MLS debut as his two goals -including a 40-yard volley in an entertaining game, helped LA Galaxy to a 4-3 victory against Los Angeles FC.

Less than a week after announcing his transfer to LA Galaxy FC, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made himself an instant hit in California. And, after he was involved in the build-up for Chris Pontius' header, the Swede struck. "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 I'd played 40 games for my 20 minutes", Ibrahimovic said.

"Someone texted me straight away, I went to check the goal and I was like 'yeah, that's just Zlatan.' I'm not trying to play it down, it's outstanding and awesome, but that's just Zlatan". The fans wanted Zlatan, I gave them the Zlatan.

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

In the first minute of added time, Ibrahimovic headed in the winning goal.

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.

"You always feel a sense of pride when a Swede does well out in the wider world", Goitom said. "That's a goal that will go around the world".

Former Chelsea and England left-back Cole stormed forwards down the left flank and crossed into the area, and Ibrahimovic guided home the header to launch his MLS career in the most dramatic way possible.

Vela drew first blood after only five minutes, picking up the ball on the edge of the area and curling a magnificent strike beyond the dive of Galaxy goalkeeper David Bingham to make it 1-0.

Daniel Steres had an own goal in the 48th minute when he put Marco Urena's pass for Vela into his own net to make it 3-0.
