"I wasn't going to let that stop today", a delighted Ibrahimovic said afterwards.

"You saw early that he was thinking of shooting, and I thought, it's gonna go in - it's Zlatan, it's gonna go in", former Galaxy midfielder Stefan Ishizaki, who covered the game for Eurosport, told Reuters.

Indeed, the 36-year-old headed home in the final seconds of the match to crown a magnificent derby comeback.

"If you look back, every team I came to, first official game, I scored".

On the glass, Tristan Thompson corralled 14 boards, with Kevin Love also hauling down eight despite a rough shooting night. On Tuesday, the Pelicans were bloodied on the defensive glass, allowing 20 second-chance points in the second half alone.

"My history when I come to a new team, I always score in the first game", said Ibrahimovic, who has played for European heavyweights Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris St Germain. I chose the power way and it went in and you don't want the adrenaline to finish.

Ibrahimovic won it in the opening seconds of stoppage time with a header off a cross by Ashley Cole to send a sold-out StubHub Center into hysterics.

"Ibrahimovic is the ideal definition of a guy who always dares to be brilliant", the German said.

However Ibrahimovic had other ideas soon after coming on as a substitute with just under 20 minutes remaining.

"I heard the crowd saying "We want Zlatan, we want Zlatan". Victor by 1-0 and 5-1 in its first games on the road, LAFC jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead and led 3-0 after an hour.

Ibrahimovic's victor was the final act of a thrilling first ever derby between the Galaxy and expansion side LAFC, who had surged into a 3-0 lead early in the second half after two goals from Carlos Vela and an own goal from Daniel Steres.

Daniel Steres had an own goal in the 48th minute when he put Marco Urena's pass for Vela into his own net to make it 3-0.
