Nahomi Kawasumi literally walks in second goal of match

Mike Russell/Sounder at Heart

The Seattle Reign kept their undefeated record intact in no small part to the play of their newly returned Japanese international.

Things are going pretty well for the Seattle Reign these days. In case you missed their latest result, they beat Sky Blue FC 3-1 on Sunday, improved to 8-0-2 on the season and continue to look fabulous doing it all. The season has been full of highlights, as you may have gathered.

But somehow it's Nahomi Kawasumi's second goal from Sunday's game that manages to illustrated the team's performance up until this point. With the Reign already storming from behind to take a 2-1 lead, Kim Little found herself behind the Sky Blue defense. As four defenders and the goalkeeper all closed in on her, Little calming laid off a pass to Kawasumi who was all alone at the back post.

Kawasumi could have taken a touch and punched it into an empty net. She could have done a lot of things. But what she chose to do was something we can all appreciate: She literally walked the ball into the net. Here's a gif of the play provided by Sounder at Heart reader bertiedav:

And that, my friends, is how you make a point.
