Zlatan’s 10th MLS Goal Is Another Banger

Zlatan Ibrahimovic used all of his 6-5, 209 pound Swedish frame to open the scoring for Los Angeles against DC United on the Fourth of July, making it 10 goals from 13 games for the striker. The 36-year-old is doing everything in his power to restore LA to prominence in MLS, but the Galaxy aren’t any good.
Chris Pontius gave LA a 2-0 lead in the 25th minute, but goals from Zoltan Stieber and Darren Mattocks saw United escape StubHub Center with a draw. With only six wins from 17 matches, this is an entirely new experience for Zlatan.
Although the teams change, the bangers do not. Here’s Zlatan thumping home a volley while making his marker look like a petulant child.

The Galaxy are now at the halfway point of the season and remain out of the playoff picture.
