An amazing right-footed blast from 36-yards out by Brazilian midfielder Juninho not only led to Los Angeles’ 3-1 victory over Seattle, but it also earned him the AT&T Goal of the Week for Week 14.
Juninho's goal – his first in MLS – doubled the Galaxy’s lead in the 48th minute. The midfielder, standing about 22 yards away from the top left corner of the 18-yard box, controlled a short pass from Michael Stephens, took a few steps forward and unleashed a devilish strike that bent over a diving Kelsey Keller and into the top corner of the far upright.

Juninho’s goal garnered 48 percent of the vote. His closest competition was Philadelphia Union’s Danny Mwanga, who received 28 percent of the vote for his lobbed finish against Chivas USA. Third place, with 17 percent, went to Alvaro Saborio and his cheeky back-heeled goal in Real Salt Lake’s rout of New England.
