Colorado Rapids Win MLS Cup On Own-Goal (Video)

What a way to win your first MLS Cup!  Seventeen minutes into extra time, Colorado forward Macoumba Kandji made a move around a defender along the end line before chipping a shot towards the FC Dallas goal, which ricocheted off George John and into the back of the net.  That would be enough to give the Rapids the 2-1 victory, and their first ever MLS Championship.

Kandji was awarded the goal on the final game sheet, thank goodness.  After all, when was the last time you saw a championship-winning goal being credited to a member of the losing team?
