Mehdi Ballouchy Nominated for Goal of the Week
Just one week after Thierry Henry claimed the title for Goal of the Week, Mehdi Ballouchy has worked his way into the running thanks to a beautiful finish courtesy of an Henry flick in the 72nd minute of Saturday's match.
The play developed when defender Jan Gunnar Solli controlled possession of the ball and work it into the offensive zone. A swift kick from the Norwegian placed the ball into the box, where Henry redirected it with a flick to the foot of Ballouchy. The end result amounted to a 4-2 Red Bulls lead as they went on to beat Montreal handily by the final of 5-2.
While the North American Soccer Reporters are responsible for Player of the Week voting (Henry won his second straight this week), Goal of the Week is entirely up to you. Let's see a second-straight week where a Red Bull brings home Goal of the Week honors. Vote below!
