The Newest MLS Goal of the Year – Kei Kamara

It seems like every week there is a new BEST GOAL EVER in MLS, and this Saturday a new choice has been added to an impressive list.  In Sporting Kansas City’s 4-2 romp over Toronto, Kei Kamara scored the first goal of the match off a Jéferson corner kick.  The kick deflected off a Toronto defender right to Kamara who did his best Wayne Rooney impersonation and unleashed an awesome scissor kick, which you can see here:

So what do you think?  Should this goal be in the goal of the year discussion?

More on this weekend’s action to follow later today on MLS Talk.

    No, it shouldn’t even be amongs the goals of the week. A goal mouth scramble followed by a fairly routine volley on the loose ball from the edge of the six-yard box…no way is that goal of the year contender.

  2. Abram says:

    It’s a nice goal, but it’s not in that Hassli, Nagbe range of goals, not by a long shot.

  3. Lars says:

    Goal looked nicer than it was. You can thank Viator and Iro for not closing down Kamara. Otherwise, this goal isn’t possible.

  4. dan says:

    NOTHING comes close to Hassli’s goal this year, perhaps Nagbe but I’d still say Hassli beats him by a distance purely on the hard angle he had.

    This goal is very nice though. It’s pretty cool on how you can just tell that the quality of MLS is growing leaps and bounds every year. Black and white compared to MLS 5 years ago even.

  5. Alex says:

    i know the whole “that stadium looks like one from europe” cliche gets thrown around but that stadium really does look like one in europe.

    anyways a goal is a goal. its nice and probably should go up for a prize or sumthing but best goal in mls? nope. that goal belongs to Balboa. but it is a nice volley

  6. Joe in Indianapolis says:

    I’m sorry, but this is not the goal of the year. A volley from inside the box after a deflection from a corner kick? Between two sh&t teams? Grow up.

    Nice volley but not goal of year. Probably not even goal of week.

    His famous miss from 2inches away though will remain in the Miss of The Year category for a long, long time.

    And no, the Hassli goal is NOT goal of year over the Nagbe one.
    Controlling a high ball, the giving a second touch to it to hit a volley on the third touch with teh ball never touching the ground is a COUPLE of nice skills.

    The Hassli goal was from a difficult angle but lets get real, it wasnt from a dead angle, it was from the corner of the 16m box.. he was simply running away from th net and kicking it the other way. Its hard to do but it has whiffs of luck and ‘what the hell, I’ll just shoot since’.

    The Kamara goal is so not in league with these two.
