AT&T Goal of the Week: Toronto FC's Jonathan Osorio claims Week 9 honors with stunning strike
It may have come in part because of a goalkeeping error, but Jonathan Osorio's well-taken goal from distance for Toronto FC this past weekend was a thing of beauty.
Osorio scored for the second time this season in Toronto FC's 2-1 loss to the New York Red Bulls last Saturday after a failed clearance by New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles allowed the Toronto midfielder to collect the ball and deliver an inch-perfect shot over a leaping RBNY defender, but just underneath the crossbar.
The strike from distance may not have saved the Reds from defeat, but it did go on to claim the AT&T Goal of the Week award for Week 9.
Osorio narrowly edged out Andres Romero's curler in the Montreal Impact's 2-0 victory over the Chicago Fire, winning the vote by 1.8 percent.
