Tonight’s game in MLS between Orlando City and New York City saw a novel situation, as the league’s two new franchises went head to head.
The game finished 1-1, with Orlando equalizing in the 90th minute through Ricardo Kaka’.
Well, the goalscorer’s name should be accompanied by an asterisk really, as the 2007 Ballon D’Or winner’s free-kick took a HUGE deflection.
Kaka’s shot was headed goalward, but the deflection completely changed the flight of the ball, sending it into the other corner.
The former AC Milan and Real Madrid man didn’t care, and rightly wheeled away celebrating euphorically.
