Aaron Herrera scored a stunning goal, but his team could not win.
American “Real Salt Lake” met with the team “Atlas” from the Mexican Championship at the stadium “America First Field” in the friendly tournament “North American League Cup”.
The defender of the American club “Real Salt Lake” Aaron Herrera opened the scoring in this match with a crazy blow in the 17th minute of the meeting.
The football player started the attack in his own half of the field, saw that the goalkeeper of the opponents went far out of the goal and instantly decided to shoot from about 65 meters. The ball flew into the air and, in an amazing trajectory, landed in the net of the Mexican team’s goal right behind the goalkeeper.
“Never seen greater beauty“, – reacted to Herrera’s goal in club social networks.

However, the American club failed to win in the end. At the 36th minute, “Real Salt Lake” was in the minority after the removal of Justin Meram. Playing in the majority, the Mexicans were able to turn the tide of the fight: equalize, take the lead and eventually win the final match with a score of 1:2.
It is worth noting that this was the third season of the friendly tournament, which started in 2019.
