Watching from home ( SSFC fan ) I just had to shake my head & say “well done”. GOTY. Unless Djibril Cisse actually comes & try’s to one up him. Only a handful of guys in MLS could even come close to that strike must less even attempt it. Sad I wasn’t there in person to see it.
Phenomenal goal. He could try that 100 more times and not come close. And why limit it to consideration for MLS goal of the year? If there was such a thing as world goal of year, that strike would have to be in the running.
Yeah, right. We all know someone will come along and bicycle-kick one in from 10 yards out and that will somehow win.
🙁 I was gonna start come in here and start yelling Swag.
I’m glad Hassli’s in the league. He’s entertaining.
Cool guys don’t look at explosions.
not even close
Yeah too bad that Edson’s was in the Playoffs, or it would’ve been a goal of the year contender.
Even the Seattle fans were smiling and applauding!
it was like the wonder strike edson buddle scored back in mls against seattle
definitely better than agudelos, and unless someone pulls a bicycle, it’ll probably be goal of the year. Unbelievable placement and touch, I have to give it to him.
Clint + Thierry
Yes that’s both hands down goal of the week and goal of the year! While we’re at it, minus well give player of the week honors to San Jose’s Lenhart for scoring 3 goals and assisting on another goal against DC. Very exciting action from the MLS this week so far.
I read Matt’s comment as pure, unadulterated sarcasm. So yes, I think he was kidding.
C’mon you have to be kidding. Yes if the offense was attacking, maybe, you can say he was in the wrong position but this was a complete mistake by the defense and no way you can say this was Keller’s fault. And proper position is always closer to near post, which he was, than far post as I think you are suggesting
Keller almost had it, and would have, had he been in the proper position for a shot like thatwhen the ball was kicked: i.e. standing at the far post with his hands up.
Forget goal of the year. That was on of the best goals in MLS history.
BALLER STATUS. SWAG.
This Timbers fan has that up at goal of the year regardless of affiliation; an amazing hit off the full volley. Show me any international player who wouldn’t be proud of that…
Fantastic. Nothing more to say.
The soccer equivalent of a hole in one. Sometimes you just get lucky and there’s not a darn thing anyone can do about it.
It’s already there. Search Eric Hassli and filter for today only.
Can we get it on youtube so we can post in euro forums and show what can be seen in MLS?
That type of volley is what French people do apparently. It must be genetic.
So now it’s his turn to do something really stupid and get kicked out of the game.
Almost as funny as Cantona’s slow turn.
Wow. That’s one of the best goals I can remember in MLS. I love Keller’s little half-smile at the end. There’s not much else you can do at that point.
Love the celebration afterwards. Just simply walking off. Usually players run around screaming after a stunner like that.
You know he was like – sh*t I wanna take my shirt off soooo bad right now.
agudelos goal was better
Sounders fan, just got home from Qwest. Thought the Sounders played a little flat, but credit to Hassli, that was goal of the year, jesus. Everyone in the stadium was in awe of that goal…
Wow. Can we crown Goal of the Year already?
