The Sounders are heading back to their fourth MLS Cup Final thanks to one cunning waterfowl. Gustav Svensson, coming off of a positive Covid-19 test and subsequent quarantine, entered the match in the 77th minute with the Sounders trailing Minnesota 2-1.
I’m sure the Minnesota United squad watched plenty of tape leading up to the Western Conference Final matchup, but they forgot the cardinal rule: Don’t let the Goose get loose.
Well, the Goose got loose, and he wound up with the game winning goal and his celebration on this shirt.
We’ve partnered with Breaking T — and the MLS Players Association — to bring you this shirt (buy it here!) to commemorate a match and a goal that no one will soon forget.
Let’s take a moment to relive the pure joy that Goose brought us all:

Will Columbus Crew make the same fatal error as Minnesota and let Goose run wild? We’ll find out on Saturday. Until then, treat yourself this holiday season to a new shirt, whether it be The Goose is Loose! or one of our other Breaking T collabs!
