Yimmi Chara's stunning bicycle kick is up for MLS Goal of the Year

It was a year of two bicycle kicks for Yimmi Chara.

And his first overhead stunner against NE Revolution on February 26 is up for MLS's Goal of the Year. Voting is open now—vote here.

His second bicycle came one game later—on March 6 away against LAFC—and is also worth revisiting. In addition to the four goals the younger Chara brother scored for the Timbers this year, he ended the season near the top of MLS's fastest players. According to MLS's Tom Bogert, Chara ranked #5 in top sustained speed. No wonder his FIFA 23 pace rating is a whopping 91.
