Zlatan keeps up scorching start to life in LA

SPORTSZlatan Ibrahimovic scores in first start to boost Galaxy at FireSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

And as expected, "Ibra" got on the scoresheet as the Galaxy defeated the Fire 1-0 on a chilly day at Toyota Park in the Chicago suburbs.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been on the field for 127 minutes for the Los Angeles Galaxy, and he already has three goals scored.

The Fire started to come into the game more around the hour mark, forcing Galaxy 'keeper David Bingham into several saves, including a skipping shot from distance by Aleksandar Katai that Bingham did well to push wide of the net.

It moved the Galaxy up to second in the Western Conference, while Schweinsteiger - another former United player - and his Fire have only won one of their opening five games to languish second from bottom in the Eastern Conference.

Ibrahimovic finished off of the feed by hitting it into the far post netting, past a stationary Richard Sanchez.

"I feel like I should have scored another two goals".

"I think the game was hard, it was not an easy game especially with the weather". "I missed two great chances which normally, I shouldn't have missed, but today I did", Ibrahimovic said after the game. It was not an easy game, especially with the weather.

His time at Old Trafford, meanwhile, was cut short by a knee injury, and he eventually rescinded his United contract to join LA Galaxy in MLS.

The former Manchester United and Sweden striker had made a dramatic arrival in MLS earlier this month, scoring twice on his debut in a 3-2 win over Los Angeles FC.
