U.S. Soccer has already awarded the 2021 Goal of the Year (Sergiño Dest) and Save of the Year (Ethan Horvath), based on national team action. Now, it’s Stars and Stripes FC’s turn. We’ll vote for three categories:

  • Goal of the Year (for club)
  • Assist of the Year (for U.S.)
  • Assist of the Year (for club)

Ground rules: Goal or assist must have taken place from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. Player must be USMNT-eligible.

December 2020

Before we get going, it’s important to note that there were two fantastic goals scored in December 2020. These goals are not up for voting, since they didn’t take place in 2021.
