VIDEO: Montero slams home from 40 yards to rock Robbie and Becks

“Look at the nastiness of that ball”, bellowed the ESPN commentator as Fredy Montero unleashed a belter.

ROBBIE KEANE AND David Beckham were watching this midweek Major League Soccer match from the comfort of their Los Angeles homes but must have been impressed by this stunning strike.

Fredy Montero from the Seattle Sounders picked the ball up inside the L.A Galaxy half and took a touch forward before unleashing a rasping drive.

The goal rubber-stamped another MLS defeat for L.A, who chose to rest Keane and Beckham ahead of tonight’s home match with the New York Red Bulls.

Speaking after the match, Montero described his goal as ‘special’. He added:

When you have an opportunity to shoot at that distance, you just try, you know? Turns out that ball went into the net.

L.A coach Bruce Arena said he expects Keane and Beckham to start against New York.
