Those with good memories will remember when David Beckham scored a goal last season against the Kansas City Wizards from the defensive half of the field. On Saturday night, the Wizards garnered a measure of revenge for that highlight-reel goal.
Wizards midfielder Claudio Lopez picked up a turnover near midfield and blasted a left-footed shot over the head of LA goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts and into the net during KC's 1-1 tie vs. Los Angeles on Saturday. The goal should run away with MLS goal of the week honors.
Goal of the year candidate? I'd say so.
