It has been awhile since Gonzalo Pineda had a truly standout performance. He wasn't exactly playing out of his mind for most of this one, but the only thing most people will remember is this goal. Check it out:
Clint Dempsey deserves some credit for a nice pass and the buildup was really impressive, but let's give Pineda his share, too. The decision to pull it back was what really opened things up and that shot was perfect. Not a bad way to get his first goal of the year, nor a bad time to do it.
