If you’ve gonna make a name for yourself, it’s time to do it now. At this time next week, we will know exactly who will be competing in this year’s MLS Cup playoffs. No margin for error now.
With that in mind, it’s the perfect part of the season to plant one in the top corner from 25 yards, or tackle the entire opposing defense before tricking the goalkeeper.
Week 34 was a fantastic harvest for top class goals, here are our top five:
Nothing sweeter than a panenka. ?

October 28, 2021 Ricardo Pepi’s transfer could be positive for American football and MLS
FC Dallas and USMNT’s Ricardo Pepi are looking for a transfer, and while this may seem like just bad news for MLS, it could strengthen the league’s reputation.
October 27, 2021 NYCFC revives the playoffs with a 6-0 victory over DC United

Usually this is a space reserved only for golazos and dizzying runs, but the absolute audacity of Emanuel Reynoso’s “panenka” penalty against Sporting KC deserves a mention. Tim Melia was left with eggs all over his face, and Bebelo came out and looked like the most icy man in the twin cities.
Sure to say, manager Adrian Heath was impressed.
“There’s not much I can do when he picks up the ball, but he has so much confidence in his own ability and that can be seen in the way he plays,” the former Everton forward told reporters. “When he plays like he did in moments and spells today, he is perhaps the most talented football player in the league. He can do things that no one else can do. Maybe one or two can score more goals than him, and that’s something we “He can actually do things on the pitch that no one else in this league can do.”
18-year-old Cade Cowell makes an unreal solo goal?

A fun thing with Quake’s man marking system; it is often so fascinating that the opposition is drawn to copy it. Well, at least that seemed to be the case when Cade Cowell was left with a wide open plan to run into on the way to putting his team 3-1 on RSL.
Still, you have to give a lot of praise to the teenager for driving so powerfully, before he made idiots of Justen Glad and Co in the Salt Lake backline.
A wonderful solo effort and a timely reminder of what this incredibly talented 18-year-old is capable of.
GOAL Lucas Zelarayan! ? @ColumbusCrew doubles his lead. pic.twitter.com/orRuLlporl

Just days after creating a physics-defying strike against Orlando, Lucas Zelarayan was up and running again this weekend, curling one past DC United goalkeeper Bill Hamid.
This was Zelarayan’s eighth goal outside the box this season, at least three more than any other MLS player. The recent Armenia international is really starting to get comfortable in this column.

Taty Castellano’s position against Inter Miami finally placed him at the top of the MLS Golden Boot position – right where he should be given that he has been leading the xG lists for several months now.
His opening attack in the NYCFC’s 3-1 victory was particularly eye-catching, as he pulled away from Leandro Gonzalez Pirez before shooting an extremely accurate finish over John McCarthy and into the far corner.
Castellanos looks completely unstoppable right now and with NYCFC’s place in the playoffs secured, he will now try to secure that coveted golden boot.
Paul Arriola with the early strike! ⚡️
What a start for @DCUnited. pic.twitter.com/YkttELTmIU

You can criticize Josh Williams for losing his run, and Eloy Room for not being more alert, but who in the world expected Paul Arriola to crush the ball from that angle, on his weaker foot ?! And for Williams ‘defense, it was a really smart race over Columbus’ back line.
See the perfectly weighted ball over the top from Felipe Martins as well. This is a goal that drops in quality and extravagance – it’s just a shame that it did not count for anything when DC United three away their early lead and lost 3-1.
