AT&T GotW update: Martins scissor kick cutting it close

There’s a South American battle at the heart of this week’s Goal of the Week.

Brazilian Felipe Martins leads the vote with his side scissor kick securing the Montreal Impact's win over Philadelphia Union. Only 1.3 percent behind is Seattle Sounders veteran Fredy Montero with his quick footed reaction picking up Alex Caskey’s rebound. With such a small gap between the two, who knows whether Martins’ scissor kick or Montero’s side-footed volley will come out on top at the end of the week?
