Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasted little time in proving he could still score in the Serie A.
The former LA Galaxy star found the net 64 minutes into his second appearance — and first start — for AC Milan, helping the Rossoneri to a 2-0 win away to Cagliari. The victory was Milan’s first in more than a month in all competitions.

The goal was Ibrahimovic’s first for Milan since he scored 28 times during the 2011-12 Serie A campaign, and his first in competitive action since he scored in the Galaxy’s 5-3 conference semifinal loss to LAFC in the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs on Oct. 24.
Ibrahimovic’s return to Estadio San Siro began when he came on as a second-half substitute in a 0-0 home draw against Sampdoria last Monday.
