    I just spilled my Japanese ice cream everywhere.

    Looks like it misses the QPR defender’s head by inches–and lucky for him because he would be eating through a straw for a week.

  3. fischy says:

    I was confused when I saw the headline, because DC United had not played yet today.

  4. Falsify says:

    I’m going to get chided but there was no defender on him. As nice as it was, I would put it on equal footing with Darlington Nagbe’s goal from two years ago.

      You can’t see it in the video, but the ball was cleared out toward a QPR player. Rafael fought his was around him before hitting that shot. You can see the player trying to recover and close him down, but too late.

    that could of killed someone

  6. Hopper says:

    Every time I strike the ball that sweetly, I wet in my Under Armors a little.

    Definition of a banger right there

  8. Oog says:

    Wow! What a strike. It’s magic like that goal that makes me love soccer.

  9. Weston John says:

    That was clearly not a “must see” goal…joke…just kidding, Ives! That was a laser!

  10. Brad says:

    I think we can all agree, that was a must see goal.

    I hit one just like that with my weak foot last night

    Anyone notice Van Persie taking a spill into the camera pit just before Rafael shoots?
