Eric Hassli, Brek Shea, Graham Zusi scored special amazing goals

In case you haven't read or seen, there were a couple of quality goals scored this weekend.  Actually not just quality but amazing goals scored this weekend.

First we go to Sunday's Sporting KC vs. FC Dallas match where Brek Shea eludes mutliple Sporting KC defenders and tidily slips the ball past a hopeless Eric Kronberg.

We stay in Dallas where Graham Zusi scores his second goal of the game on a free kick from distance.  Zusi has been playing in the shadow of teammates like Teal Bunbury, Omar Bravo, and Kei Kamara and even honorary Chad Ochocinco but he impressed me this past Thursday.  I'm even more impressed by last night's performance.

Next we go to Chicago not so much because this was an amazing goal but this is a Chicago blog and this goal made me happy.  Orr Barouch deserves some credit for his work eluding three Crew defenders and Cristian Nazarit deserves some credit for being in the right place at the right time.  This is a game of positioning.

Finally we save the best for last.  On the road at Qwest Field in the 85th minute, Vancouver finds themselves down 2-1 searching for a goal after being up 1-0 for over 80 minutes.  Seattle's Mauro Rosales and Osvaldo Alonso scored in the 81st and 84th minutes respectively to turn the game on its head.  Seattle's defense misplays the ball, Hassli collects it at the upper corner of the box and proceeds to volley it over an unsuspecting Kasey Keller.  I don't see how any goal can beat that out for Goal of the Year even though Zusi's and Shea's goals aren't too shabby.  Kevin McCauley is describing it as the best goal in MLS history.  Take a look for yourself.
