Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn't do anything by halves, so his 500th goal in professional soccer was always going to be ridiculous.

Victor Vazquez opened the scoring on five minutes, Jozy Altidore doubled the lead in the 16th minute and then Sebastian Giovinco found the back of the net in the 36th minute to give Toronto FC a 3-0 lead.

We were reminded of this in small hours of Sunday morning as the former Swedish worldwide brought up his 500th career goal in spectacular fashion during LA Galaxy's game with Toronto.

Units of the Chinese People's Liberation Army and Mongolian Armed Forces also participated in the drills. Additionally, military cooperation will be further developed.

There have been many memorable goals in the Swede's career and the 500th was right up there as he joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only active players to reach the milestone.

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

He added an additional 62 goals for the Swedish national team.

"I was close to the goal", he said. It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax.

It was Ibrahimovic's 17th goal in 18 appearances for LA Galaxy since joining from Manchester United in March, making him the second highest scorer in MLS this season.

"I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim". "I was just trying to hit the goal and it went in".
