Columbus Crew-FC Dallas features a headed goal from outside the box & an overhead kick to the throat

20120403 kkt sx9 429 large Columbus Crew FC Dallas features a headed goal from outside the box & an overhead kick to the throat David Beckham is not the only MLS player that can provide viral videos, the Columbus Crew-FC Dallas encounter also threw up a couple of great clips.

Both came in the second half as the Columbus Crew came back from 1-0 down at home to see off Dallas 2-1.

Early into the second period, a left wing cross was floated in and headed across goal for Justin Meram to attempt a bicycle kick on goal.

Meram however, didn’t connect with the ball but rather smacked FC Dallas defender Hernan Perutz in the throat for a classic “Ouch!” moment.

The second half pressure from Columbus eventually told on 72 minutes as they scored a quality winner, with a rare headed goal from outside the box.

Nemanja Vukovic floated a corner to the edge of the area and Sebastian Miranda (pictured) placed a delightful header into the corner.
