Late surge in voting wins Villarreal AT&T Goal of the Week

LA's Jose Villarreal seems to have a flair for the dramatic.

After salvaging a 2-2 draw with the Vancouver Whitecaps last Wednesday on a wicked left-footed strike, the 18-year-old rookie stormed back in the voting to surpass Thierry Henry and capture Week 20's AT&T Goal of the Week.

Down 2-1 on the road, the Galaxy youngster – who was playing in just his second professional game  took a quick feed from Juninho at the top of the box, cut the ball back and fired it into the top corner.

Villarreal secures the fourth AT&T Goal of the Week award for the Galaxy in 2012 – and the second consecutive – after David Beckham won in Weeks 6, 10 and 19. For a complete Goal of the Week archive, click here.
