You know that feeling of ecstatic joy and relief when the the back of the net bulges from a Seattle Sounders strike? That sense of victory, the wonderment of experiencing incredible skill (or maybe luck)? I can’t think of a reason not to mainline that glorious feeling for 14 minutes and 25 seconds, and that’s just what you’ll get with this compilation video of every single goal from 2017.
The critical strikes might not have come in that final match of 2017, but the Sounders certainly had no trouble finding the goal throughout much of the year. In case that was slipping form your memory, SoundersFC.com has you covered here.
Rewatching these brought us right back to some moments we hadn’t thought about for a while. There’s Román Torres and Cristian Roldan fighting and scrapping for hit after hit at the ball right on the Portland Timbers goal line, with Roldan finally sneaking it in with his right foot to take the lead. We see Osvaldo Alonso finishing off a play with his head to complete a massive comeback against the New England Revolution. And in addition to his many inch-perfect assists, we have Joevin Jones barreling into the box and following up on his own saved strike to slot home a goal at Providence Park.
Yeah, we’ll definitely miss Joevin.
