Chris Tierney Nominated for MLS Week 8 Goal of The Week

Tierney's ankle-breaking tally earned a spot on MLSsoccer.com's Goal of the Week voting. Does Tierney's goal trump the rest?

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

In the second half of a weekend showdown with Real Salt Lake, the Revolution mounted pressure on John Stertzer and the RSL back line. After a few promising chances went begging, Chris Tierney launched his way onto the scoring sheet--and into an MLSSoccer.com Goal of the Week nomination.

Tierney, having received a lofting pass from Juan Agudelo, put on the brakes and took a touch toward the top of the box. Stertzer nearly left his boots as Tierney moved into space, and USMNT defender Tony Beltran followed, almost mirroring Stertzer's motion. The Revs' left back curled a shot off his non-preferred right foot past Jeff Attinella and into the side netting, giving the Revolution a 1-0 advantage.

Tierney will contend with several strong finishes, including a Benny Feilhaber rocket from distance and a cheeky Pedro Morales chip from inside the box. Where does Tierney rank among the five nominees?
