Montreal Impact star Ignacio Piatti is your first AT&T MLS Goal of the Week winner for 2016, after his mazy solo run and finish in Sunday's win over Vancouver narrowly outpolled Federico Higuain's jaw-dropping bicycle kick for Columbus Crew SC in a 2-1 loss at Portland.

The Argentinean maestros took this one went down to the wire: Nacho edged Pipa, 53 percent to 47 percent, in the final. Piatti's goal also defeated stellar strikes by Giles Barnes (HOU) and Diego Fagundez (NE) en route to the final.
