5. Andrew Wenger, Montréal Impact
Let’s take a moment to appreciate a nice (if straight forward) header from 2012’s first overall draft pick. With his team down two in Dallas, the former Blue Devil elevates and meets the cross at a perfect height, directing his shot into the far corner to bring his team back into the match.
4. Pedro Morales, Vancouver Whitecaps
Partly in honor of the build up, partly in honor of the finish, the Whitecaps new Designated Player makes the list with his first Major League Soccer goal, a score that put his team up 4-0 against visiting New York.
3. Mauro Díaz, FC Dallas
No need to move, Mr. Perkins. You have no chance.
2. Will Bruin, Houston Dynamo
Jose Goncalves does Bruin a favor by getting out of the way, but the skill behind the finish overshadows any help the Houston striker got from New England’s defense.
1. Sebastián Fernández, Vancouver Whitecaps
Woof. Welcome to Major League Soccer, Sebastián. You may have had trouble sticking with a club over the last two years, but with efforts like this, you’re welcome to stay as long as you want.
