SPORTSManchester United will miss Zlatan Ibrahimovic after LA Galaxy move- Phil Jones Email

Los Angeles Galaxy's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, of Sweden, celebrates his debut goal during the second half of an MLS soccer match against the Los Angeles FC Saturday, March 31, 2018, in Carson, Calif.

The Sky Sports pundit told Super Sunday he had been left impressed by the Swedish striker's sensational half-volley to pull Galaxy level from 3-0 down six minutes after he came on, but that it was a outcome of his self-confidence and ability.

Indeed, the 36-year-old headed home in the final seconds of the match to crown a magnificent derby comeback.

In the 77th minute, Ibrahimovic lashed home a 40-metre volley to make it 3-3 at the StubHub Center.

"If you look back, every team I played for, I scored in my first official game". I wasn't going to let that stop today.

"I heard the crowd saying 'We want Zlatan, we want Zlatan, ' he said".

The imposing Swede would later ride on the fans' adulations to score the victor after his teammates had assisted in the comeback And by the time he scored the victor off a header in a game that ended 4-3 in the 91st minute, Ibrahimovic had already sufficiently wowed the crowd whom he claimed were the reason he gave such classic rendition.

Ibrahimovic exceeded the sky-high expectations placed on his shoulders and instantly made good on his promise to help the Galaxy return to their winning ways after a dismal 2017 campaign where they failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008. "That's a goal that will go around the world".

Ibrahimovic as a free agent he moved to the MLS from "Manchester United".

However Ibrahimovic had other ideas soon after coming on as a substitute with just under 20 minutes remaining.

Carlos Vela's curler into the top left corner in the fifth minute gave LAFC an early lead.

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.
