The best goals of MLS matchday 12

Major League Soccer‘s matchday 12 did not disappoint.

Players are getting right in the swing of things, firing stunning shots into the goal left and right. In the West, Evander finally proved he was worth the club-record transfer fee with two goals against the Vancouver Whitecaps, while Kai Wagner led the way in the East.

Here’s all the best goals you might have missed…

To kick off, we have Rafael Czichos vs. St. Louis CITY.

The Chicago Fire desperately needed a win, and thanks to the goal by Czichos, they got it. The first-half goal sealed the three points for the Eastern Conference team, after the player connected with Designated Player Xherdan Shaqiri to find the back of the net.

The Philadelphia Union defender scored his first goal of the season in a stunning fashion to level the game against the Colorado Rapids, before going on to help the team secure the 2-1 victory.

Wagner found Julian Carranza’s pass just outside the box before blasting the right-footed shot into the net.

The New York Red Bulls claimed the state after defeating rivals NYCFC on Saturday with a goal from Omir Fernandez. And it wasn’t just any old strike, but a fantastic effort to find the upper left corner and set the stadium into a complete frenzy.

What a moment for the player.

Denis Bouanga is at it again. The LAFC player just cannot stop scoring.

This time, he managed a rocket in the first half against Real Salt Lake to double the lead and secure the three points. He’s now managed nine goals in 10 MLS games.

And finally, Evander! Looks like the player is adjusting to Major League Soccer after a couple games for the Portland Timbers.

He’s now proving why his price tag broke club-record, scoring a great goal to secure the much needed three points against Vancouver.
