Carlos Vela delivered a moment that “stays with you”, Los Angeles FC coach Bob Bradley said after the Mexican forward scored one of the greatest goals in MLS history.

Former Arsenal and Real Sociedad star Vela netted a double as the runaway Western Conference leaders eased to a 4-0 win over San Jose Earthquakes.

His first was an emphatic penalty but it is his second that will live long in the memory.

After playing a neat one-two and regaining possession 25 yards from goal, Vela danced his way beyond two defenders and then expertly rounded the goalkeeper, the forlorn defender on the line tumbling as the former Arsenal man tucked home from point-blank range.

“One really special goal,” Bradley said of Vela’s effiort.

“We all want to see moments like that. You come to the game tonight and you see that goal, that’s something that stays with you. Carlos is capable of doing that kind of stuff.”

Vela has scored 24 goals this season, putting him seven shy of equalling Josef Martinez’s single-season record of 31.
