Eric Alexander Nominated for MLS Goal of the Week
Eric Alexander’s second goal of the season, as he sliced and diced his way through the Montreal defense then finished his run with a left-footed shot, has been nominated for MLS Goal of the Week for Week 20.
Alexander’s tally came in the tenth minute off a great run set up by Thierry Henry in the midfield, who deked two defenders and sent it along to Alexander. From there, Alexander then split four defenders before firing a rocket on goal that singed the back of the net and put the Red Bulls up 1-0. His tally sparked the Red Bulls offense, as the club would later add three more against the Impact en route to 4-0 clean sheet victory Saturday night at Red Bull Arena.
