Nagbe's first goal a work of art

[VIDEO PICK] Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe, the 20-year-old Liberian who was Portland's No. 2 pick in the MLS SuperDraft after he starred at Akron, scored his first MLS goal and it was a beauty.

The 2010 MAC Hermann Trophy winner juggled the ball three times before stroking a tremendous volley into Sporting Kansas City's net for Portland's goal in its 2-1 loss last Saturday.

    This was a beautiful, beautiful goal, and a nice counter-video to those coaches who say that teaching kids how to juggle is a waste of time.

    Ian, I agree! I've already sent this to the kids on the team that I coach, telling them this is why I push them to learn to juggle!! Brilliant effort.
