VIDEO: Luke Rodgers Joins Wondergoal Club

MLS goal-scorers must be doing something right these days because it's starting to become a pretty regular occurrence when we use the word "wondergoal" (or it could just be that we're simply overusing the term...). The latest to join that club is Luke Rodgers, whose goal against Toronto FC was an absolute beauty. Rodgers essentially popped the ball up with his left foot and then took a side-kicked volley to beat Stefan Frei and put the New York Red Bulls up 2-0 in a game they went on to win 5-0.

Also of note in the match was Thierry Henry scoring his league-leading ninth goal and Juan Agudelo turning in his first career two-goal performance. Henry's goal was of the classic "he makes it look easy" variety, while Agudelo's first was a rather impressive header in which his momentum was moving in the opposite direction of the goal.

On a side note, it's hard not to feel bad for Stefan Frei these days. He's clearly one of the more talented goalkeepers in the league, but it seems like he's getting left out to dry more than any other goalkeeper. He's now allowed a league high 34 goals. No other keeper has allowed more than 22.
