Giorgos Giakoumakis' outstanding 2023 debut season with Atlanta United got that much better with his Matchday 13 golazo that earned the Greek striker AT&T 5G Goal of the Matchday honors.

The winter Designated Player signing from Scottish powerhouse Celtic FC, who's got six goals in nine appearances, sealed the Five Stripes' midweek 4-0 drubbing of the Colorado Rapids with a 90-minute stunner: Control, technique, poise and a chip over the charging William Yarbrough – Giakoumakis put all his goal-scoring talent on display in one amazing sequence that earned 40.2% of the fan vote.

His closest competition was none other than teammate Thiago Almada, with the Argentine World Cup winner adding yet another free-kick masterpiece to his collection, accounting for 30.8% of the vote.

Third place (22.8%) went to rookie breakout performer Brandon Cambridge, whose left-footed curler was the first of his two goals on the night that inspired Charlotte FC's 2-1 comeback win over Chicago Fire FC in just his fourth-ever league appearance.

Lucas Zelarayán rounds out the competition (6.2%) with a spectacular individual effort that highlighted the Crew's 2-0 home victory against the LA Galaxy.
