Zlatan Ibrahimovic simply doesn't score ordinary goals, but even by his standards, his 500th career goal was special.

With his LA Galaxy side trailing 3-0 in the first half against Toronto, Ibrahimovic directed the ball in off the post with a incredible, roundhouse spinning kick from a Jonathan dos Santos long ball just before half time.

The striker now plies his trade in the USA after playing for an array of elite clubs in Europe such as Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG and Manchester United, chalking up goals that brought him a championship title in nearly every league he's played in.

Good start carries Bengals past Ravens
At that point, no one would have blamed the Ravens for wanting a second game against the Bills this season, not the Bengals . There's also the matter of rookie center Billy Price , who left the game early with an injury that could be concerning.

He came into Saturday's game tied for second in MLS scoring with 16 goals this season.

Over his illustrious club career, he also has scored for Paris Saint-Germain (156 goals), Inter Milan (66), AC Milan (56), Ajax (48), Manchester United (29), Juventus (26), Barcelona (22), and Malmo (18). He also played for the Swedish global team.

Ibrahimovic, who scored to reduce Toronto's lead to 3-1 before half-time, joined Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the third active player to score 500 goals between club and country.
