Gilberto's first season in MLS has not exactly gone as planned, having failed to score in any of his first nine appearances for Toronto FC. He may have finally had a moment that turns his season around.
Just moments after nearly coming to blows with fellow Designated Player Jermain Defoe over who would take a free kick from about 25 yards out in Friday's match against the New York Red Bulls, Gilberto finally got off the schneid with an absolute rocket.
Of course Defoe struck a wide smile after the ball hit the back of the net and the teammates shared a passionate hug afterward.
The only problem? Although the goal gave Toronto FC the lead, the Red Bulls ultimately tied the score in stoppage time.
