Watch: MLS star's run and rabona is contender for assist of 2016

Published 6 Comments

Major League Soccer might get a bad rap from a lot of the footballing world, but once in a while the North American league produces a moment of true magic.

In the past, we've seen Darlington Nagbe become a YouTube sensation courtesy of a wonder strike, whilst former Juventus star Giovinco is a regular on highlight reels.

And they were at it again over the weekend courtesy of an incredible assist from FC Dallas' Colombian winger Fabian Castillo. Scroll down to see the moment of magic for yourself - with four players beaten and a rabona cross included, you won't regret it.

With the score tied at 0-0 after 20 minutes of Saturday night's game between Dallas and the Chicago Fire, Castillo took it upon himself to inject some magic into proceedings.

What followed was a run from the halfway line, several Chicago players left on their backsides, a little bit of luck and arguably the assist of the year so far in any league.

Already being tagged as one of the greatest goals ever to be scored in MLS, it was actually Maximiliano Urruti who's name will go down as the goalscorer.

Even he would admit, however, that it was all down to the quick feet and quick thinking of Castillo.

FC Dallas went on to win the game 3-1, but it is safe to say none of the other goals in the match included anything quite as spectacular as Castillo's dribble and cross.
