Twitter goes wild for Zlatan Ibrahimovic's heroics in his Galaxy debut

BC-SOC--MLS-Galaxy-LAFC, 1st Ld-Writethru,555

Less than 48 hours after arriving in Los Angeles, Ibrahimovic came off the bench to score two goals and lead the Galaxy to a 4-3 win over LAFC.

Ibrahimovic, 36, showed little signs of rustiness when he helped his team to come back from 3-0 behind, scoring the equaliser and winning goal for Galaxy on Saturday, reports Efe.

A Daniel Steres own goal would make it 3-0 to FC at the Stubhub Center before the Galaxy struck back in an fantastic 15 minute spell through goals from Sebastian Lleget, Chris Pontius and then Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Tar Heels played the University of North Carolina at Charlotte 49ers on Tuesday and stayed overnight after the game. Even though they aren't in action, Korver and Lue are now back with the team and Love could potentially play Friday.

But Sebastian Lletget pulled one back on 61 minutes, and two minutes after Ibrahimovic entered the field for his debut, Chris Pontius brought it back to 3-2.

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 won it with a header in the opening seconds of stoppage time after tying the match at 3 in the 77th minute when he caught LAFC goalkeeper Tyler Miller out of his goal and scored on a 40-yard kick. You need to go through it yourself and I've been through it many times.

"You always feel a sense of pride when a Swede does well out in the wider world", Goitom said. Not bad for a 20-plus minute debut. "I'm sure it will be a YouTube sensation, it's fantastic". "That's a goal that will go around the world".

Carlos Vela's curler into the top left corner in the fifth minute gave LAFC an early lead. Bingham lost his footing, allowing Vela to tuck his shot in under the crossbar for his third MLS goal in three games. But an own goal by a Galaxy player had compounded their problems as their hopes of levelling the game looked bleak.
