While one ex-Premier League striker was bagging a hat trick for one Los Angeles team, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was generating a highlight reel night for the other one.

The LA Galaxy would blow its Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired lead in drawing rivals San Jose Earthquakes in a road Cali Clasico, but that doesn’t do much to alter the visual delight of a pair of goals for the big Swede.

Romain Alessandrini also scored for LA in the 3-3 draw, which leaves the Galaxy two points back of the West’s final playoff spot. Chris Wondolowski had two goals and Vako Qazaishvili scored for bottom-dwelling San Jose.

Ibrahimovic, 36, needed less than a minute to bang home his first of the night, a rising rip 59 seconds into the game.

Ibra was certainly aided by the goalkeeper on the second goal, his worm-burning low free kick sliding inside the near post.

It still looked nice.
