Sixty-nine seconds is all it took for LAFC and the Philadelphia Union to score two of the most stunning goals from Week 2 as late Sunday evening gave way to early Monday morning.
The first saw Jakob Glesnes do his best Roberto Carlos impression, rifling home a 40-yard free kick in the 48th minute to give Philadelphia a 2-1 lead. His knuckling shot left goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer fanning at air.

As special as Glesnes’ golazo was, LAFC drew level at 2-2 in the 49th minute via Diego Rossi’s stunning curler to the far post. The Uruguayan collected on the left wing and floated his right-footed effort past Andre Blake.

While Glesnes and Rossi’s efforts were jaw-dropping in their own right, golazos were raining and pouring at Banc of California Stadium. Philadelphia opened a 1-0 lead in 29th minute via a long-range blast from Sergio Santos, only for Carlos Vela to equalize via a left-footed free kick in the 39th minute.
If that wasn't enough, the Union and LAFC again traded goals in quick succession further into the second half, with Brenden Aaronson connecting on a nice turn and finish before Eddie Segura tucked home after a chaotic sequence in the Philadelphia box.
And to think that all unfolded in a 20-minute span during the match. Pure madness.
