You may remember Vancouver's Eric Hassli for his chip and volley wonder goal against Seattle last season. Though his latest wasn't quite as astonishing, it was another exquisite volley worthy of playing on a loop.

With Toronto leading Vancouver 1-0 in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final at the beginning of stoppage time, Hassli found himself in open space inside the box and on the receiving end of an Alan Rochat cross, which he pinged into the top corner with grace and ease.

That salvaged a 1-1 home draw for Vancouver and gave Hassli his third goal in three matches after failing to score in his first eight matches this season.
