Bend it like Barco: Check out runaway winner of the AT&T Goal of the Week

Ezequiel Barco’s stunning curling attempt early in the second half against the New England Revolution did three things: It secured his first multi-goal MLS performance, Atlanta United's first win of the season and won him the AT&T Goal of the Week.

As we’ve seen previously, ATLUTD players in this poll usually result in the winner and Barco ran away with 85% of the vote tis time around.

Barco, who came off the bench for an injured Eric Remedi, settled a ball played across the box by Hector Villalba, took a touch inside the box and fired a screamer inside the far post. It was his third goal in three games and part of his first MLS brace.

Osvaldo Alonso’s remarkable volley from 13 yards out, the first goal at Allianz Field in Minnesota United’s wild 3-3 draw against New York City FC, came in a distant second at 9%.

Toronto FC’s Jozy Altidore, Lucas Rodriguez of D.C. United and Jackson Yueill of the San Jose Earthquakes each had 2% of ballots cast.

See all five nominated goals and the full breakdown of voting results in Week 7.
