Video: Shea Salinas Can Ball

Jun 2, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

We're still in recovery mode from an amazingly sports-dominated holiday weekend, and with Saturday being particularly saturated, the Union's second win was lost amidst the chaos for many of us. It's a shame too, because it sounds like it was a great game with another dramatic finish—Danny Mwanga scoring in extra time for the second straight game to give the Philly side a 3-2 victory in Houston.  

Although Mwanga's ability to finish in the clutch is a great sign for the building Union, and we'll always celebrate a goal by immediate fan favorite Sebastien Le Toux, it's hard to top this one by Shea Salinas.


And thats really only the finishing portion of the goal. You can see the whole run here if you have SilverLight (which embeds like crap), as well as read more on what led to the goal and vote the effort up for MLS Goal of the Week by clicking here. [Update: Salinas won in a landslide, making him the second Union player to take home Goal of the Week in the past three weeks.]
