Golazo: NYC FC’s McNamara Scores A ‘Serious’ Goal


“Tommy McNamara! Are you serious?!”

That was the call of Fox Sports’ play-by-play guy John Strong as McNamara — who was indeed serious — put his looping, curling shot into the top cover of the Portland Timbers’ goal to give New York City FC a 2-1 lead, which would also be the final score.

As with our other Golazo posts, it’s always best to see the shot, which brought smiles to the faces of David Villa and Andrea Pirlo among others, and also enjoy the commentary of Strong, who in our book is one of the top TV soccer commentators today.
