Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, who tallied his first goal of the Major League Soccer season, was named winner of the FrontRowSoccer.com goal of the week Monday.
Wright-Phillips, the 2016 MLS Golden Boot winner, scored in the 57th minute as the Red Bulls equalized at 1-1 against the Seattle Sounders in their 3-1 loss at CenturyLink Stadium Sunday night.
Right back Sal Zizzo overlapped on the flank and sent a cross to BWP, who headed the ball home from eight yards past goalkeeper Stefan Frei.
Here is a video of BWP’s goal:
The English striker became the quickest MLS player to reach 70 goals, in only his 115th league match.
Wright-Phillips tied the league record for goals in a season with 27 in 2014, winning the Golden Boot in the process. He led MLS with 24 goals last year.
