Carlos Vela Fully Takes The P*ss By Scoring Ridiculous Solo Goal Against San Jose Earthquakes
Carlos Vela demonstrated that he's far too good for the MLS yet again last night with the most scintillating solo goal.
The Mexican forward skipped past three players and destroyed the entire San Jose Earthquakes' defence before finishing from close range.
Runaway league leaders Los Angeles FC blitzed their opponents 4-0 at home and it was Vela who took centre stage yet again.
He scored a 17th-minute penalty before he decided to completely and utterly take the piss out of San Jose just before half-time for his second.
The move all started off with a deft dummy into the path of a teammate and after collecting the ball back, he ended the careers of four players, including the goalkeeper. Bodies left on the floor, bag secured.

The pace and trickery from the former Arsenal man is next level and might just a serve as a reminder to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has had a few things to say about Vela, of just how good the Mexican is.
Having contributed to 41 goals (26 goals and 15 assists) so far this season, the 30-year old has already beaten Sebastian Giovinco's MLS record of 38 in a single season.
His next record in sight will be to surpass the 31-goal season Atlanta United striker Josef Martinez conjured up last year. And with eight games still to play, the odds are very much in Vela's favour.
"I think you always have the hope or motivation to get things like the record," Vela told reporters last week, via Goal.
"You get it because you work every day to be able to have rewards like this. Obviously, it doesn't always happen and it's not easy to do it, but it's what has kept me at a good level.
