Zlatan shines on MLS debut

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

Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has recently joined Los Angeles Galaxy shared his impressions about his debut in USA after his team's 4-3 victory over Los Angeles.

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

Ibrahimovic, who only arrived in California on Thursday and had not played since December, admitted he felt exhausted from his match-winning 20-minute cameo after coming on as a substitute in the second half. You can't teach that.

"You always feel a sense of pride when a Swede does well out in the wider world", Goitom said.

"If I had more strength, I would have run all over the pitch, but I just managed the one side of the field".

'That's got to be a goal that's going to 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 heard the crowd saying 'We want Zlatan, we want Zlatan, ' he said".

"I said before I came here in Manchester with the Galaxy people, that I would make the fans enjoy me".

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

But Los Angeles did not have to wait long for the second, with Vela beating Bingham before coolly taking his time to lift his shot into the goal off the underside of the bar.

Ibrahimovic's victor was the final act of a thrilling first ever derby between the Galaxy and expansion side LAFC, who had surged into a 3-0 lead early in the second half after two goals from Carlos Vela and an own goal from Daniel Steres. But an own goal by a Galaxy player had compounded their problems as their hopes of levelling the game looked bleak.

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