Portland Timbers’ Dairon Asprilla pulls off amazing bicycle kick goal against San Jose Earthquakes

Dairon Asprilla, take a bow.

The Portland Timbers forward submitted a late entry for Major League Soccer’s goal of the year with an amazing, must-see bicycle kick goal from outside the 18-yard box against the stunned San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night.

The frenetic play started when Earthquakes goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski spilled the ball and Asprilla was able to recover the rebound. With Marcinkowski well outside of the goalmouth, Asprilla took the rebound and launched the ball over the goalkeeper’s head and in for an incredible goal.

Dairon Asprilla scores a bicycle kick goal during the second half against the San Jose Earthquakes at Providence Park.

Asprilla’s goal conveniently occurred right in front of Portland’s famed supporters’ section, the Timbers Army, and Asprilla sprinted over to share his celebration with the boisterous fans. He was presented with a yellow card for an excessive celebration. It was totally worth it.

“I don’t have time for that speculation. That’s a joke to me. I’ve got one of the best jobs in all of professional sports. Why would I have any interest in coaching college football?” Tomlin responded, clearly getting hot under the collar.

“That will be the last time that I address (these rumors). And not only today, but moving forward. Never say never, but never, okay?” concluded Tomlin, who has been in his current job for the past 15 years.
