7. David Villa vs. Portland Timbers

May 15, 2016

This was more about the pass than the goal — fullback RJ Allen channeled his inner Andrea Pirlo with a perfectly weighted through ball to split the defense and find Villa, who tidily finished between two defenders. What might be more significant was that the goal came against the defending MLS champions, on the road.
