It took all of eight seconds for Tim Cahill to bounce out to this cracker of a goal for a 1-0 lead over the Dynamo on Sunday afternoon. It wasn’t just the swiftness of the goal that grabbed your senses either. The chest-down was perfect. The first touch was impeccable. And that outside-of-the-foot shot… dreams are made from it. Brilliant.
Perhaps most importantly, Cahill’s thunderplonker set the tone for a 3-0 rout that kept alive NYRB’s chase for the Supporters Shield. One more weekend, gents, and the playoffs are upon us.
