Vancouver Whitecaps Vs. Seattle Sounders, 2011 MLS: Fredy Montero Strikes Twice; 3-1 Seattle

Pick. That. Out. Fredy Montero hadn't been having his best game against the Vancouver Whitecaps, but he's turned that around in the last couple of minutes, scoring a quickfire brace to put the Seattle Sounders 3-1 up and surely handing them all three points in the match. His second goal was somewhat fortunate, a deflected effort off Jay DeMerit that looped in over Joe Cannon from range, but his first was so perfect it should probably be framed and sent to the Louvre.

Montero tried to release Nate Jaqua by clipping the ball over the defence, but DeMerit was just about able to get the ball clear with an overhead effort. Unfortunately for the hosts, the ball fell back to Montero, who surged into the area, turned Boxall with a trick that bought him two yards from space and then curled a lovely shot into Cannon's top corner. Absolutely no chance of stopping that one, and the game has been thoroughly turned around - Vancouver's 1-0 lead seems a long time ago now.
