David Bingham’s debut for the San Jose Earthquakes was quite seismic. Before his epic goal he actually thinks of throwing the ball to a player in the outfield.
He then boots the ball (physics tells you the longest trajectories by projectiles are achieved at 45 degrees to the horizontal) which bounces on the D in front of West Brom’s Boaz Myhill and skips over. Myhill barely moved a muscle. Chalk up another spectacular MLS goal in a list of quite a few this year. It was the game winning goal as the Earthquakes won, 2-1. West Brom under Roy Hodgson finished a respectable 11th in the EPL.
