Daigo Kobayashi hits 30-yard stunner

Jeff Vinnick

So, this guy looks like a good signing.

Daigo Kobayashi went a long way towards quieting those who were skeptical about his signing with a very good performance last week in a win over Toronto FC. The MLS season isn't even two weeks old for the Vancouver Whitecaps, but it's probably time to admit that Tom Soehn and Martin Rennie knew what they were doing when they signed this dude.

He opened the scoring for the Whitecaps against the Columbus Crew with this stunning 30-yard strike on Saturday. This video will force you into making a 'THAT WAS SO NASTY' face.

I mean, dang.
