Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores first goal for AC Milan since 2012 in win over Cagliari

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.
