Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored an 83rd-minute winner as Manchester United beat Leicester 2-1 Sunday to capture the Community Shield and earn Jose Mourinho his first trophy as the club’s manager.

On the day United moved closer to signing Paul Pogba in potentially a world-record transfer, its most high-profile offseason signing so far made an immediate impact in the English season’s traditional curtain-raiser at Wembley Stadium.

Having a quiet game by his high standards, Ibrahimovic met Antonio Valencia’s right-wing cross by leaping high and directing his header in off the post.

Eleven weeks after scoring an extra-time winner for United in the FA Cup final at Wembley, Jesse Lingard returned to the stadium to put his team ahead in the 32nd minute with a solo goal.
