The Swedish striker came off the bench in a 19-minute cameo, which included a superb volley from long range before netting the winner.

The 36-year-old only arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday evening, but he wasted no time in making an impact after helping the team overturn a 3-0 deficit.

"If you look back, every team I played for, I scored in my first official game. I wasn't going to let that stop today," Ibrahimovic told reporters, according to FourFourTwo.

"I was just waiting to come on because when you're losing 3-0, the adrenaline is pumping even more because you want to be able to do something for your team in a difficult situation.

"The fans were demanding something and I gave them Zlatan.

"I always say it's difficult when you do something like that first goal. You cannot describe it. You need to go through it yourself and I've been through it many times. Wherever I've gone, the fans have gone crazy.

"I said before I came here in Manchester with the Galaxy people, that I would make the fans enjoy me.

"There are kids out there and you just want to give back to them. They are the future and you want to be a good example to them in a crazy way and that's by scoring crazy goals.

"I felt I'd played 40 games for my 20 minutes. It was everything - jet lag, didn't play for a long time," he added. "I did the first sprint and I was starting to breathe immediately, so when the second one came, I thought I'll shoot and not run with the ball. That was the ball that went in.

"But there was a lot of adrenaline because I hadn't played for a long time."
