The Colorado Rapids came into Sunday’s return leg vs. the LA Galaxy already down a goal. The Rapids have never been a high-scoring team so they needed a little bit of magic.
Shkelzen Gashi was more than happy to oblige:
Talk about a monster strike. It curls over the out-stretched hands of Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe, and just like that, Gashi had the series all tied up.
Even better, his 37-yard strike is longest-distance goal in MLS playoffs for at least the past five years:
In a cruel twist of fate, Gashi was injured and had to be carried off the field just before halftime. Whether the Rapids advance or not, Gashi still did his part.
