Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores superb backheel goal in LA Galaxy training

While Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hardly lit MLS on fire during his first month or two at LA Galaxy, the veteran striker has at least shown glimpses of his phenomenal prowess.

Indeed, during a training session this week, the Swede dazzled his teammates by scoring with a textbook leaping backheel volley that looked even better in slow motion.

Speaking to the press, Ibrahimovic also revealed that he's not bitter in the slightest about not going to the World Cup.

Nope. Not one little eenie-weenie bit.

Unfortunately, the fact of the matter is that the 36-year-old did actually retire from international duty in the immediate aftermath of Euro 2016 after Sweden finished rock bottom of their group.

Given it was his choice to step away, perhaps he shouldn't be feeling massively hard done by.
