Ibrahimovic: I didn't want to let it down this time

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his arrival in Major League Soccer with two goals on his debut including an injury-time victor as the Los Angeles Galaxy fought back from three goals down to beat Los Angeles FC 4-3.

In a video posted on LA Galaxy's Instagram account, Ibrahimovic, who is still getting back into form after a serious knee injury last April, is seen scoring on an astounding 40-yard kick catching the LAFC goaltender off his line to tie the score 3-3 in the 77th minute.

The Sky Sports pundit told Super Sunday he had been left impressed by the Swedish striker's sensational half-volley to pull Galaxy level from 3-0 down six minutes after he came on, but that it was a effect of his self-confidence and ability.

"I felt like I played 40 games for my 20 minutes", Ibrahimovic said. "I was feeling everything, jet leg, I didn't play for a long time". I did the first sprint and I was starting to breathe immediately. I don't want to feel any more adrenaline'.

"I didn't want to let it down this time". That's the ball that went in.

"I saw the goalkeeper he was out and I thought I would shoot it over. I'm sure it will be a YouTube sensation, it's fantastic".

"Under these weather conditions, it's not easy".

The deal is the latest in a number of eye-popping announcements from Saudi Arabia promising to scale up its access to renewables. Saudi Arabia also plans to build at least 16 nuclear reactors over the next 25 years at a cost of more than US$80 billion.

Ibrahimovic, who announced his switch to the MLS last month has maintained his fantastic record of scoring on his debut. "I was born old and I will die young", Ibrahimovic said in the conference ahead of Saturday's match against their new cross town rivals Los Angeles FC.

The imposing Swede would later ride on the fans' adulations to score the victor after his teammates had assisted in the comeback And by the time he scored the victor off a header in a game that ended 4-3 in the 91st minute, Ibrahimovic had already sufficiently wowed the crowd whom he claimed were the reason he gave such classic rendition.

Ibrahimovic admitted however he would prefer more straightforward games in future.

"There are kids out there and you just want to give back to them". "But when you're losing 3-0 and you win 4-3, it's fantastic for the fans".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic lived up to the billing by netting two sensational strikes on his Galaxy debut in the inaugural LA derby on Saturday.

Galaxy coach Sigi Schmid meanwhile said the team had weighed playing Ibrahimovic amid concern for his fitness. It's just him - he's made for that. "You can't teach that", Schmid said. If you do that, you can pull off things.

'That's got to be a goal that's going to go around the world.
