Never short of confidence, Zlatan Ibrahimovic marked his La Galaxy debut on Saturday night with a match-winning brace, including an outstanding 35-yard goal.

The former Manchester United man made his debut during the Galaxy’s 4-3 win over  LAFC in the first edition of the ‘El-Trafico’ derby.

Ibrahimovic, who made the trans-Atlantic move from Old Trafford just over a week ago, came off the bench on 71 minutes, with the score 3-1 to LAFC.

However, soon after the big Swedes’ arrival, the Galaxy would get one back through Chris Pontius.

Then, on 77 minutes, Ibrahimovic marked his arrival in true Hollywood style, latching on to a loose ball before launching an inch-perfect long-range rocket which sailed into the back of the net…

Just Zlatan being Zlatan!

However, that wasn’t the end of it for the big man, who nodded home the winner in stoppage time in a truly memorable Stateside debut…

The game would end 4-3, with Ibra already making quite a name for himself in the USA.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the big man got himself a few movie cameos in the coming years either!

    Did you write this up during stoppage time? I bet you wrote this during stoppage time…

    Guilty as charged FighterCK! Trust Zlatan to score the winner!

    He could be playing for United. It’s a shame that he left but I don’t blame him. Who wants to play for Mourinho when you can live in Hollywood?
