From the “are you serious” department, we present one of the most unique winning goals you’ll ever see.
We head to Subaru Park in the waning moments of the USL Championship clash between Philadelphia Union II and Hartford Athletic that is deadlocked 2-2.
Union II goalkeeper Mitchell Budler casually grabs a Tyreke Johnson cross in the box and races to the edge of the area in an attempt to quickly distribute.
Standing a couple of yards outside the 18, Hartford’s Danny Barrera flashes his leg out behind him and remarkably makes contact with the ball, which caromed high in the air, over the stunned goalkeeper and a defender into the net.
And if Hartford finish atop Group F in the USL Championship, they might have that wacky goal to thank for it.
