The Ecuadorian international bent home an incredible Olimpico in a 1-0 win over Atlanta United last Sunday, beating goalkeeper Brad Guzan straight from the corner flag. The stunning finish won 42.5% of the vote.
The expansion club’s first Goal of the Week triumph means that FC Dallas midfielder Brandon Servania slots into second place with 29.5% of the vote. Servania launched a long-range knuckleball in a 3-1 win over the Colorado Rapids, starting the comeback effort with a swerving shot that dipped and moved.
Those sterling strikes meant two golazos from the same match, a 2-2 draw between Real Salt Lake and Toronto FC, rounded out the voting. Third place went to RSL’s Justin Meram (17.1%) for a top-corner snipe, while TFC’s Jayden Nelson (10.9%) brought up the rear with an opportunistic and precise first MLS goal that caught goalkeeper Zac MacMath out of position.
