WATCH: Ibra 40-yard screamer wins GOTY

LA Galaxy superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic added to his illustrious list of honours by being awarded the Major League Soccer Goal of the Year.

Ibrahimovic, 37, scored twice in his debut for the Galaxy helping the club rally to beat local rivals LAFC 4-3 on March 31.

The first saw him latching onto a dropping ball around 40-yards out from goal, before pivoting on the spot and hitting a sweetly struck volley over the head of goalkeeper Tyler Miller.

The former Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain star then headed home the winner for a memorable debut at the StubHub Center.

Ibrahimovic has scored 22 goals in 27 appearances since joining the team from Man United earlier in the year and is reportedly considering returning to AC Milan during the MLS off-season.

The Goal of the Year accolade is the latest in a series going to the striker after he was named MLS newcomer of the year ahead of former England captain Wayne Rooney.

Both players were also named in the MLS team of the season.
