Goal of the Year Villa

Vote NYCFC trio for MLS Goal of the Year!

NYCFC have moved on to the next round of the AT&T Goal of the Year with four goals.

David Villa weighs in with two of our contenders for the annual prize for best MLS goal, while Tommy McNamara and Jack Harrison are also in contention with one each.

Villa's sensational strike against Vancouver goes up against McNamara's long range screamer against the Red Bulls in one head-to-head of the five-round brackets.

In another head-to-head, Jack Harrison's brilliant goal against Montreal goes up against David Villa's sublime chip against Orlando. 

Through five head-to-head rounds of bracket-style voting, fans will whittle down the field of 64 nominees – as determined by the MLSsoccer.com editorial staff, which scoured all 956 goals scored this MLS season, including the 32 AT&T Goal of the Week winners.

Once voting concludes at 6 p.m. ET on Friday, November 11, the player receiving the most votes will win the award.
