Ibra soars for Galaxy with superb brace on his debut

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

His first touches led indirectly to Galaxy's second goal before he unleashed one of his trademark long-range volleys, belting the ball in an arc over Tyler Miller for the equaliser before ripping off his shirt to celebrate.

No matter the intention behind the goal, Galaxy manager Sigi Schmid was blown away by the natural talent required to make it happen.

It continued Ibrahimovic's streak of scoring in his first game for every club he has played for.

"That's just world class. I'm sure it will be a YouTube sensation, it's fantastic". "You can't teach that", Schmid said.

Speaking after the victory, via the Independent, the 36-year-old was full of his characteristic cockiness, claiming: "I heard the crowd saying "We want Zlatan, we want Zlatan". You can't do something brilliant unless you dare to be brilliant, and Ibrahimovic is a ideal definition of the guy who always dares to be brilliant. "That's a goal that will go around the world".

The Swedish striker followed up with a gutsy header in the 91st minute from a pass by Ashley Cole that proved to be Galaxy's victor, sending the sell-out crowd of 27,068 into a frenzy on a sun-soaked day in Southern California. "I came in a wheelchair and after three months I conquered England; then they said I was flying", he said.

Vela scored in the 5th minute, curling a shot from outside the penalty box in to give LAFC a 1-0 lead.

The Mexican struck again 21 minutes later from close range when Galaxy keeper David Bingham fell down and Vela hit the top of the crossbar before the ball landed over the line.

When Daniel Steres scored an own goal in the second half to make it 3-0, the game looked over.

Next up for the Galaxy (2-1-1) is a trip to Sporting Kansas City on April 8 while LAFC (2-1) host Atlanta United next Saturday.

"It's Zlatan being Zlatan", he said.
