LA Galaxy midfielder Riqui Puig unleashed a top-corner rocket to seal a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union. The Spanish sensation has helped propel LA to a 3W-0L-4D stretch, resurrecting their season.
FC Cincinnati left back Álvaro Barreal linked up with Luciano Acosta, cutting back onto his left after a nutmeg-style through ball and toe-poking home a nutmeg finish to the far post. That strike, Barreal’s third of the year, completed a 2-2 comeback draw at Charlotte FC for the Supporters’ Shield leaders.
Though he didn’t score himself, Houston Dynamo FC midfielder Héctor Herrera orchestrated a stunning team move in a 2-2 draw vs. Sporting Kansas City. The Mexican international went full “champagne football” mode, completing one-touch passes that led to Aliyu Ibrahim’s empty-net finish.
New York City FC homegrown Justin Haak’s first-ever MLS goal was a beauty, setting himself up for a top-corner volley in their 1-1 draw at the Columbus Crew. Haak, not part of the July 19 match vs. Arsenal, began the move with a sharp run out of midfield before Santiago Rodríguez picked him out.
