Dairon Asprilla scores Goal of the Month… Year… Decade? (video)


Portland Timbers winger Dairon Asprilla’s 22nd goal for the club is one of the best in Major League soccer history.

The 29-year-old set up a bicycle kick goal for himself from outside the box and delivered it, taking advantage of a major whoopsie from Quakes goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski to complete the scoring in Portland’s 2-0 win over San Jose late Wednesday.

And sometimes you’ll read about bicycle kick goals that are still awesome overhead kicks but not quite loyal to what we envision when we hear the term bicycle kick.

Argentine-Armenian midfielder Lucas Zelarayan delivered a spectacular bending blast from distance to highlight Columbus’ late push for a playoff win.
