Gustavo Bou had an amazing performance against CF Montreal on Sunday and it appears that the rest of the league noticed.
Bou scored two goals including an absolute missile to give New England the lead in the first half. It’s a replay that fans could watch over and over. Bou is even up for MLS Goal of the Week.
The striker told the media after the game that he might have caught Montreal’s goalkeeper by surprise.
Bou said, “What I saw [on the play] was a chance to shoot the ball and find the goal, more than anything. I think the goalkeeper wasn’t really expecting it, but I was lucky to convert, and I think that play really helped the team most of all.”
The brace was just the second of Bou’s MLS career and his first in the regular season. The 31-year-old also now leads New England in goals and is tied for third in all of MLS.
While Carles Gil is dominating the conversation around MLS, Bou is having quite the season as well. So far this season, La Pantera has nine goals and three assists.
Bou will look to add to those totals as the Revolution go up against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday evening.
