Goal of the Year goes to rookie Darlington Nagbe

[VIDEO PICK] Portland rookie Darlington Nagbe's juggling golazo in July against Sporting Kansas City was voted 2011 MLS Goal of the Year.

Nagbe, 21, was born in Liberia and lived in Europe before at age 11 moving with his family to Ohio. After helping Akron win the 2010 NCAA title in his junior year he turned pro and was picked second overall in the MLS SuperDraft by the Timbers.

He scored two goals and notched three assists in his rookie year.
