Zlatan Ibrahimović's debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy was one for Major League Soccer's history books.
Ibrahimovic said in a TV interview on Fox after the game that he heard fans in the stands chanting "We want Zlatan!" while he was warming up. Viewers watching the national broadcast heard the chants too.
"So I gave them Zlatan," he said with his trademark aplomb.
Making the day even more dramatic, the Galaxy scored all four of their goals after LAFC had taken a 3-0 lead. Former Union player Chris Pontius made the score 3-2 just after Ibrahimović took the field.
Two of LAFC's goals were scored by Mexican national team forward Carlos Vela, a regional superstar in his own right.
By the way, the Galaxy visit the Union on July 21.
