Crew players and staff make the case for Goal of the Year voting.

July 4 at LA Galaxy - Anor's looping header catches Cudicini off-guard

What they said: 

Bernardo Anor: “The way that Pipa positions himself on free kicks helps [me] know where I am supposed to position myself and run. He just put the ball right there and I put myself in a position to run to space. I think it was a great jump - great header - and I was a little bit fortunate the goalkeeper was a bit in front of the line too.”

August 10 vs. New York Red Bulls - Higuaín's chip leads Crew past first-place Red Bulls

 

What they said:

 

Andy Gruenebaum: “That is why on a daily basis in training we kind of stick to our line a little bit more when Pipa has the ball. But when you do that he blasts it by you. We see him on a daily basis. If we stay on our line he is deceptive with those small strides and all of a sudden…bam – the ball is by you.”
