DUELING GOLAZOS! Jonathan Lewis battles David Villa for MLS Goal of the Week

This is like Sophie’s Choice.

MLS: New York City FC at Los Angeles Galaxy Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Not a bad way to score your first goal as a professional, Jonathan Lewis.


Of course, not to be outdone, David Villa sized up his own shot and managed a gorgeous falling-down strike that seemed to signal to the 20 year old rookie something to the effect of, “YOU ARE NOT A JEDI YET.”

Not a bad second half for the Boys in Blue, Sean Johnson’s Avengers-level superheroics aside.

Rightfully, both Lewis and the Guaje are nominated for Major League Soccer’s Goal of the Week. They’re up against RSL’s Luis Silva, New Jersey’s Sean Davis, and Portland’s Diego Valeri. Are you ready to do your part to make sure one of the good guys — ahemLEWISahem — takes top honors this week?
