Screen+Shot+2013 03 13+at+8.51.08+AM Djimi Traore (ex Liverpool) scored an off the bar screamer as Seattle Sounders made CONCACAF historyDjimi Traore doesn’t score. Pretty much ever. Until last night.

Now 33-years-old, the former Liverpool, Leeds, Charlton and Portsmouth defender recently signed up for MLS outfit the Seattle Sounders, and on Tuesday night in the CONCACAF Champions League Djimi Traore was on hand to make MLS history.

The Seattle Sounders became the first American team to beat a Mexican club since the launch of the CONCACAF Champions League, as the Americans claimed a 3-2 aggregate win. Seattle are now in the semi-finals.

Djimi Traore’s contribution was superb.

With the scores level 1-1 as the hour mark approached, Djimi Traore laced a shot from fully 30-yards which rocketed off the underside of the bar and into the net. It was a brilliant hit.
