EVENT: Vancouver Whitecaps @ Seattle Sounders
COMPLEX SAYS: It's appropriate that the best goal of the MLS season (so far) happened on "Soccer Night in America" (and that it was scored by a dude playing for Vancouver), because it pretty accurately sums up the best part of the American version of the game. No set pieces, no give-and-go, no dribbling wizardry, just a botched pass on defense and an insane, video-gamey shot from just outside the penalty area into the far post. Beautiful game our American ass!
