Raúl Ruidíaz scored one of the goals of his life against Austin FC on Thursday with an absolute missile from near midfield. Ruidíaz saw Austin’s goalkeeper off his line and made him pay for it with a sumptuous strike. This is one of the best MLS goals of the season.

This strike is certainly a front-runner for MLS Goal of the Season. The competition will be stiff, however. There have been some incredible goals scored in MLS so far, and we’re not even halfway through the season.
Here are some of the other golazos scored in MLS that Ruidíaz will be competing with.
