David Villa Chips The Goalkeeper From 65 Yards

This season, Villa already has 4 goals in 6 matches, tied for 5th in the league behind Erick Torres, Diego Valeri, Fanendo Adi, and Josef Martinez.

The win puts NYCFC top of the Eastern Conference, level with Columbus Crew, while Philadelphia Union are still winless for the 2017 season.

In the closing minutes of the match between the NYCFC and Philadelphia Union, David Villa chose to try an ambitious effort to seal the three points for the away side. "Even more when it's a goal that's hard to score", he said.

"There were two options, either to keep running because I knew I was alone, or hit it from there, I was a little exhausted so made a decision to hit it".

Jack Harrison had opened the scoring for City, whose win was sealed thanks to Villa's goal. It was similar to the goal US women's national team ace Carli Lloyd scored as part of her World Cup hat trick in the final over Japan in 2015. & #8220;It proved to be a great finish, and that I presume it takes a specific player to score a specific target.

Juventus legend Andrea Pirlo, who plays alongside Villa at NYCFC but had been substituted by the time the goal went in, waxed lyrical about its beauty. This wasn't his best long-range goal ever. On Friday, he helped his side beat the Philadelphia Union with one of the best goals of his career.
