Kandji tore ACL on MLS Cup-winning goal

[MLS] Senegalese Macoumba Kandji tore the ACL in his left knee when he was hit by defender Ugo Ihemelu on the shot that deflected off George John and into the net for the winning goal in the Colorado Rapids' 2-1 overtime win over FC Dallas in MLS Cup 2010.

The goal came in the 107th minute, only nine minutes after he had entered the game.

Kandji was acquired from New York in the mid-season trade that sent Mehdi Ballouchy to the Red Bulls.

He will have surgery on his knee next week.
