Kleberson (?!?!?) saves Union season with an unreal free kick (UPDATED with lots of video)

Oct 5, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

The Union’s forgotten midfielder — and expensive bench-warmer — Jose Kleberson came on in injury time Saturday night.

With the Union down a man, Kleberson hit a free kick that somehow went up over the wall, down, and fell inside the post. PPL Park went ballistic and the Union kept their playoff hopes alive.
