an improbable victorious goal… in a strong gust of wind

Trailing 2-0 after 12 minutes, the Chicago Fire won 4-3 against CF Montreal in MLS. Scoring twice in added time, the Chicago players benefited from a good boost from the wind on the winning goal from Kellyn Acosta, from midfield.

Transverse or long distance strike attempt? It’s hard to believe that Kellyn Acosta, author of a sensational goal with the Chicago Fire, did it voluntarily. Still, with his goal in the 90th + 9, the American midfielder gave his team victory against Montreal CF with a score of 4-3.

A goal scored from the central circle

However, the game started very badly for the Chicago players, trailing 2-0 after 12 minutes by the Canadian team after two penalties conceded.

Trailing 3-1 until the 84th minute, Chicago began an incredible comeback to finally win. Brian Gutierrez reduced the score on a penalty (2-3, 84th), Hugo Cuypers equalized (3-3, 90th+5) and Kellyn Acosta finished the job to give the locals victory (4-3, 90th+9 ).

Acosta’s goal is simply sensational. While he seems to send a cross far in front, from the central circle, the midfielder, not looking at the goal, sees the trajectory of his ball completely deviated by the wind. The Montreal goalkeeper, advanced a few meters in front of his line, is helpless and can only slow down the ball which is flying straight into his goal, in the final minute of added time.

This achievement by Kellyn Acosta is certainly the most improbable of the season. The city of Chicago, nicknamed “Windy City”, lives up to its name very well, as evidenced by this action. Without this climatic boost, the Chicago Fire’s improbable scorer would probably not have seen his name circulated around the world.
