Gyasi Zardes is a confounding soccer player. He consistently does things on the field that will have you scratching your head wondering how he's a United States international. But then he goes and shows glimpses of brilliance that leaves you wondering what could be if he could put it all together. He scored a goal for the LA Galaxy on Saturday night that will be on his career highlight reel forever:
Not. So. Fast. 1-1. #LAvRSL https://t.co/kWdZ2aMQSG— Major League Soccer (@MLS) April 24, 2016
Wow. What a hit by the enigmatic forward. It's moments like these that show why he tied the USMNT record for caps in a year by a newcomer in 2015. If he could only pull off these moments more regularly and cut down on his embarrassingly bad touches and mishaps he'd get a lot less flack from the media and fans.
No matter how you feel about Zardes, you can't deny the brilliance of this goal.
