Fredy Montero scores two against Crystal Palace

New, comments

Last we heard anything about Fredy Montero, he was supposedly on his way out at Sporting CP. Well, he's back with the Portuguese giants and off to a pretty good start during preseason.

The former Seattle Sounders forward scored a brace in a friendly against English Premier League club Crystal Palace. Sporting CP won 2-0 on Sunday.

The first goal came off a free kick from just outside the penalty area that he somehow managed to sneak inside the near post.

His second goal was a bit more impressive, as he ran onto a ball in the box and laced a left-footed shot between a pair of defenders and inside the far post.

The last notable Montero rumor had him considering a move back to MLS, but not with the Sounders. A performance like this can only serve to improve his market value, but maybe he has a place with Sporting after all.
