Anatomy of a Goal: Second Striker King Kess' Charlotte Winner
An unlikely hero stepped up with a sublime finish after an excellent attacking run, but there were many aspects to the Revs winner in Charlotte.
Many years ago, the great former Revs defender Greg Lalas then of MLSSoccer.com did a video series breaking down the tactical nuances of goals in MLS that were really enjoyable, entertaining, and informative.
This post might make it to that level, but I don’t have the editing skills and equipment to take these things to the next level. But I did want to do a step-by-step analysis of the sequence that led to the Revs winner in Charlotte and overall highlight why I think the Revs should always be considered a dangerous counter-attacking team.
