MLS Week 2: My favorite goals

My favorite goals from Week 2 of MLS. Here we go:

1. We start with Gyasi Zardes’ first goal on Saturday. The pass from Pedro Santos was unbelievably good and the way Zardes threw himself into the header….wow.

2. Bryan Acosta was mad at this ball when he struck it from 19 yards in the 61st minute. The technique was impressive.

3. Houston’s Memo Rodriguez hits a left-footed laser from 22 yards. The reaction from the goalie made this strike even better.

4. The hold-up play is what put this goal on this week’s list. I loves me some good hold-up play.

5. This pass from Kenny Saief was put right through a tunnel of five Atlanta United defenders to Roland Lamah.
