New York City FC forward Khiry Shelton has been nominated for Major League Soccer Goal of the Week for Week 11.
The rookie scored his first-career goal in the 91st minute as the Club rallied from a two-goal deficit while down a man to salvage a vital point in a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. Captain David Villa slipped out of trouble with a nifty move near the top of the 18-yard box and fed the ball to Shelton to his left. The second overall pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft aimed toward the far post with his left-footed effort past a diving Sean Johnson to equalize.
Also nominated for MLS Save of the Week (Week 11) are: Eric Avila (Orlando City SC), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Zach Pfeffer (Philadelphia) and Devon Sandoval (Real Salt Lake).
Voting runs until 11:59 p.m. PT on Thursday.
