Zlatan Ibrahimovic is showing early returns for his new club, Manchester United, as the striker netted an impressive goal on a scissor kick in his debut match on Saturday.

The score came in just over three minutes into a friendly against Galatasaray in his home country of Sweden, granting United an early 1–0 lead over the Turkish club.

Ibrahimovic announced that he would be joining the team last month after much speculation about the move. The star forward had spent his previous four season with Paris Saint-Germain, with the Premier League titans landing the Swedish star on a free transfer after his PSG contract expired.

The 34-year-old announced over the summer that the Euro 2016 tournament would mark his final games playing with his national team. Sweden failed to exit the group stage of the continent-wide tournament with two losses and a draw in its three games.
