LAFC’s Carlos Vela slaloms to AT&T Goal of the Week win for MLS Week 25

It's been labeled as the top Goal of the Year candidate so far, and some even argued that it ranks as the greatest goal ever scored in Major League Soccer's history.

So perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that Carlos Vela's jaw-dropping wondergoal vs. the San Jose Earthquakes has cruised to an emphatic victory in the AT&T Goal of the Week race for Week 25. 

The LAFC superstar's incredible solo effort, highlighted by a truly saucy dribbling run through the Quakes defense and an even cheekier close-range finish, reaped 44.21% of the vote. Montreal Impact newcomer Bojan Krkic finished a distant second at 19.43%. 

The outrageous backheel nutmeg finish in the Hudson River Derby by New York City FC's Heber came in third at 16.98%, followed by D.C. United's Ola Kamara at 10.26% and New England Revolution star Gustavo Bou with 9.13%.
