We’ve Got History: Major League Soccer’s First Goal
Planting the Seed of Soccer Across America: Danny Beerseed
Back then they were the “Clash”, those jerseys (!), and there was the 35-yard running shootout. Sometimes babies are ugly.
But it's our baby and we love it.
Major League Soccer's first goal was scored 18 years ago today by none other than one of the infant league's marquee players, Eric Wynalda. The San Jose Clash hosted D.C. United (who would go on to win the first three MLS Cups) at Spartan Stadium. Wynalda's finish was voted the league's inaugural “Goal of the Year”.
