Mezquida’s second goal of the season took 26 percent of the vote, narrowly beating Toronto’s Sebastian Giovinco and San Jose’s Nick Lima, both of whom took 24 percent of the vote after scoring from long range against New York City FC and Colorado Rapids, respectively.

Kaká’s rocket against Atlanta United finished in fourth place with 20 percent, followed by Kei Kamara’s acrobatic effort against Philadelphia Union.
