The goal that Joseph Nane put into the net against Real Salt Lake was a pretty damn nice goal, as he collected the ball at the edge of the area and snapped it just underneath the crossbar.
Apparently it was good enough to garner a nomination for this week's edition of MLS Goal of the Week. Not bad at all for his first ever MLS strike.
Click here to see the MLS video montage of the five MLS goal of the week nominees and throw in a vote for Nane. It's probably a literal impossibility to expect Nane to win the field, since it contains two Sounders players and a Timbers player as well, along with a genuine golazo by Felipe from Montreal. Still, it's cool to see that Nane got a shout out in a week where there were so many other great goals to go around.
Honestly, I think he's probably just happy to have taken the three points.
