D.C. United Vs. Paris Saint-Germain: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Will Make PSG Debut In Friendly Saturday

As Paris Saint-Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti hoped he would earlier this week, Sweden international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will make his debut for the French giants in Saturday night's friendly match at RFK Stadium.

PSG's official Twitter account confirmed the news and the word was relayed on D.C. United's own feed.

Ibrahimovic has scored 222 goals in 355 appearances for club and country since his senior professional debut in 1999. However, he is not the first big name to debut for a new club at RFK Stadium. Ronaldinho made his Barcelona debut in a 2003 friendly against AC Milan there, while David Beckham made his first appearance for the Los Angeles Galaxy on East Capitol Street in 2007.

Saturday's game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and will be seen on tape delay on Fox Soccer Channel at 10:30 p.m.
