Video: Mauro Rosales’ stunning free-kick nominated for MLS Goal of the Week


A picture-perfect strike by Mauro Rosales on a free kick has been nominated for MLS Goal of the Week.

The Sounders FC midfielder produced the beauty in stoppage time just before halftime Saturday, when Seattle rolled to a 4-0 win against the San Jose Earthquakes at CenturyLink Field.

Here is a quick look at all the goals in Sounders FC’s MLS history scored directly off free kicks, as provided by the team. I’ve added links to them all.

Any favorites?
