Michel scored a game-winner in the 84th minute of Orlando’s crucial midweek match against Columbus Crew SC, which resulted in a 2-1 win, top-four berth in the Eastern Conference and home match in the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs. Michel took home 59.23% of the total vote, nearly tripling up the closest challenger, a strike made even more dramatic by how the Lions were playing with 10 men after Nani received a 52nd-minute red card.
Second place went to San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski, who extended his lead atop the MLS all-time goals leaderboard to 166. Wondolowski cushioned home a back-post cross in a 3-2 win over LAFC, which helped San Jose clinch a Western Conference playoff spot.
As for third place, it went to Colorado Rapids midfielder Kellyn Acosta with 11.21% of the vote. Acosta bent home a beautiful right-footed shot in their 1-0 win at the Portland Timbers, which also clinched a Western Conference playoff spot.
LA Galaxy star Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez took up fourth place with 4.29% of the vote, scoring his second goal since coming to MLS, this one capping off a team move. Columbus right back Harrison Afful, who blasted home a left-footed screamer, brought up the rear in fifth place with 3.52% of the vote.
