On the brink of penalties, Jakob Glesnes calls game with unreal goal

CHESTER, PA — Jakob Glesnes picked up Kacper Przybylko, Cory Burke and the Philadelphia Union’s season and put them on his back delivering an incredible strike in stoppage time of the second overtime to lead the Union to a 1-0 win over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night.

Przybylko and Burke both missed golden opportunities to give the boys in blue a lead and Andre Blake and Carlos Coronel traded highlight-reel saves to send the game to within seconds of being decided by penalties when Glesnes does what the Norwegian defender does: score jaw-dropping goals.
