WATCH: Dillon Serna golazo as DC United thrash Colorado

Aug 18, 2014, 8:53 AM EDT

The scoreline shows 4-2, an offensive explosion for Eastern Conference stronghold DC United as Luis Silva bagged a brace.

But after scoring early, United found it hard work to pick up a second.

In fact, it was 1-1 in the 52nd minute after Dillon Serna happened.

The 20-year-old – yep, you read that right – chased a long ball that just popped out from the midfield, and first-time touch lofted it at least 35 yards over Bill Hamid and into the far corner.

Oh, and don’t forget the back-flip at the end. That’s all part of the show, the Dillon Serna Show

Unfortunately, despite the hosts missing Eddie Johnson, Colorado couldn’t handle the combination of Silva and Fabian Espindola.

Meanwhile, DC United got themselves back on track after dumping two straight games, and while their lead over the third-place slot in the East isn’t as gargantuan as it used to be, it’s still enough to stay comfortable. And they still remain just two points back of Real Salt Lake and Sporting KC for the Supporter’s Shield.

    great strike…have been hearing a lot about this kid. As an aside, if you read the article before watching the video, the first two sentences make it seem like Serna plays for DC United.

    There’s also this on the link from the main page: “DC United’s 20-year-old helped them to a big win in a big way.”

    The only MLS game on Sunday and can’t even get a proper write up.

      It seems that ever since Steve left, MLS has taken a back seat to the rest of the world. Or possibly third seat to the EPL. These boys need to remember they work for a company headquartered in the United States of America.
