Sanna Nyassi has proven himself to be capable of individual moments of brilliance in past seasons, and Wednesday night he did it again. 

Nyassi got onto the end of a Justin Mapp cross and unleashed a ferocious first-time volley inside the near post to break a tie in the 67th minute and give the Montreal Impact a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution at Stade Saputo.

Patrice Bernier opened the scoring in the 28th minute, converting a penalty kick — after two initial conversions were waved off — after Nyassi was taken down in the box by Chris Tierney. The Revs tied it up just before halftime, with Lee Nguyen's blast from long range hitting off the crossbar and off the back of Impact goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts before crossing the goal line.

The Impact leapfrogged the Revs for sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings (although New England has three games in hand), while dealing them their second straight loss after a five-game unbeaten run.

Highlights from the match are after the jump:


What did you think of Nyassi's goal? Do you see either of these teams climbing into the postseason hunt in the East?
