The pair of MLS All-Stars were at it again over the weekend, with Villa notching a brace in New York City FC’s thrilling 5-3 win against Orlando City SC and Giovinco tallying his 13th goal of the year in Toronto FC’s comeback 3-3 draw at Columbus Crew SC.
While Villa and Giovinco have been regular AT&T Goal of the Week nominees this year, they’re both still looking for their first honors. Villa is nominated for his first goal against Orlando, while Giovinco is in the running for his stunning volley that began TFC’s comeback in Ohio.
They’re joined by a third All-Star, Sporting Kansas City’s Benny Feilhaber, who’s in the field for his long-range strike in Sporting Kansas City’s 2-1 loss at Real Salt Lake. Orlando rookie Cyle Larin – who bagged a hat trick in the loss to NYCFC – is nominated for his third tally, while Houston’s Leonel Miranda’s chipped finish in the Dynamo’s 3-0 win against the LA Galaxy rounds out the group.
