Twitter goes wild for Zlatan Ibrahimovic's heroics in his Galaxy debut

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his presence known to MLS almost immediately, with two goals to clinch the first LA Derby for Galaxy.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice off the bench in his MLS debut to lead LA Galaxy past LAFC after trailing 3-0 in the clubs' first meeting.

The LA Galaxy were losing 3-1 to crosstown rivals LAFC when Zlatan Ibrahimovic came on the pitch in the 71st minute for his MLS debut.

After playing a part in the buildup to getting one goal back, the Swedish lion score the next two himself in dramatic fashion to rally his new club to a 4-3 win.

The stadium erupted, and so did Twitter as "Zlatan" became a top trending topic worldwide. Here's a look at the best reaction tweets as Ibrahimovic introduced himself to Los Angeles.

Can Ibrahimovic keep it up over the next two seasons? Only time will tell, but his debut was unforgettable.
