Zlatan Ibrahimovic won’t play in the World Cup, so he made sure to give the fans something to remember over the coming break.
On a night in which the promotional giveaway for the Galaxy was a set of postcards commemorating the 15th anniversary of StubHub Center, Ibrahimovic gave them something to write home about.
He scored two goals on headers in the second half to lead the Galaxy to a 3-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday.
Ibrahimovic played his last game before he leaves for the World Cup, not to play but because of sponsorship opportunities. He took advantage of two chances in front of the net within a five-minute span to energize the 25,462 spectators, who offered up cheers as he left in the 86th minute with his arms raised.
Schmid did not have an update on Sebastian Lletget, who left early in the second half because of an ankle injury, Schmid said.
“I had the opportunity to try to show some work that I’ve been putting in and offer something to these guys,” Jamieson said.
