Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players with 500 or more senior club and global goals after scoring an eye-catching effort during LA Galaxy's defeat by Toronto.

Like a fine wine, Zlatan Ibrahimovic keeps getting better with age.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored via a roundhouse volley, flicking the ball past the helpless Alex Bono in goal.

At worldwide level for Sweden, he made 114 senior appearance and scored 62 goals.

Toronto had jumped out to a 3-0 first-half lead at BMO Field before Ibrahimovic's goal fueled a furious Galaxy rally that saw a tie game by the 58th minute. Although Galaxy managed to level the game up at 3-3, two more late goals for the Canadian side saw them claim a 5-3 win.

That number comes from the National Hurricane Center report issued less than four months after landfall in December of 2005. People there were diagnosed with Leptospirosis, a bacterial disease because the water is contaminated.

Meanwhile, former All Whites coach Anthony Hudson suffered yet another defeat in his new job as Colorado Rapids coach.

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Galaxy.

Speaking after the clash, he said: "I was close to the goal. I was just trying to hit the goal and it went in".

The 36-year-old Swede joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only active players with 500 goals for club and worldwide play, cutting the Galaxy's lead to 3-1 in the 43rd minute.
