As we all know, the big Swede made his debut in unforgettable style, scoring a sensational brace to lift the LA Galaxy over LAFC in El Trafico I, a.k.a. The Greatest Game in MLS History.
Though tonight’s matchup vs. the Timbers is officially a collaboration between the Galaxy and the LA Kings, the fans have celebrated the one-year anniversary of Zlatan’s debut as an unofficial holiday.
As it turns out, Ibra was this close to making history again. In the 14th minute Rolf Feltscher delivered a cross from the right flank, and Ibra once again replicated his prowess in the martial arts, executing a right footed kick that deceived goalkeeper Jeff Antitella but clanged off the bottom of the post before bouncing away.
Zlatan could only curse at the heavens, agonizing over what could have been. However, Ibrahimovic would draw a penalty later in the half to put the Galaxy ahead.
