You would have to go back to February 26 last year to recall the last time Ibrahimovic scored a hat-trick in Manchester United’s 3-0 UEFA Europa League win over Saint-Etienne.

Cristian Higuita opened the scoring for Orlando on 18 minutes, But Giovani dos Santos leveled for the hosts six minutes before the break.

Orlando regained their lead shortly before half-time when Kjestan’s cross from the right deflected off Galaxy defender Michael Ciani and into the net.

But after the break, it was the Zlatan show. He made it 2-2 on 47 minutes when his towering header from a Dos Santos cross from the left found the top corner.

However, Orlando regained their lead seven minutes later when Dom Dwyer headed in Mohamed El-Munir’s left-wing cross.

But Ibrahimovic came to the rescue once again with a thumping diving header to make it 3-3. And he completed his first MLS hat-trick, and secured the points, on 71 minutes, smashing home a half-volley following a weak defensive clearance.
