The match between Atlanta United and D.C. United has seen two spectacular strikes that could receive a nomination for goal of the season. 

For D.C. United, they found themselves 2-0 against Atlanta United, and Hernán Losada’s squad needed a jolt to get back into the match, which they received from Felipe Martins.

Following a blocked shot, the loose ball would land at Martins’ feet, who would fire off a shot from outside the box to get DC United on the board.

The goal would come in a 3-2 losing effort. United looks to maintain their playoff position, which sees them tied for sixth place in the Eastern Conference, only two points to the good of playoff positioning.
