MOST COMMENTED

[MLS AWARDS] The Seattle Sounders' Patrick Ianni became only the second defender to score the MLS Goal of the Year when he was awarded the 2012 AT&T Goal of the Year for his side volley on June 20 against Sporting Kansas City.
 
Ianni launched himself horizontally to meet Mauro Rosales' curling free kick with a right-footed side volley inside the near post for the tying goal in a match that ended 1-1.

It was Ianni's first goal of the season -- and the fourth of his seven-year career.
 
Ianni's goal bested Darlington Nagbe's strike against Real Salt Lake, teammate Fredy Montero's long-range blast against the Los Angeles Galaxy and the goal by New England's Lee Nguyen against Vancouver.

Marcelo Balboa's goal for the Colorado Rapids won the 2000 Goal of the Year.
