So much for the international break.
On Tuesday evening, the Seattle Sounders scored one of the most impressive goals in recent memory when Stefan Frei scored on...Stefan Frei. According to a tweet posted on Frei's account, the 32-year-old goalkeeper crossed an item off his bucket list when he sent a blistering 25-yard free-kick past a diving version of himself while playing FIFA.
With his right foot, Frei perfectly placed his shot in between Chad Marshall and Gustav Svensson, both of whom turned away from the ball. Frei's shot continued onward into the top right corner of the goal, where it went just beyond the fingertips of the other Frei. In the ensuing celebration, the goalscoring Frei jumped on the ad boards in jubilee.
Marshall jabbed at his goalkeeper for not making the save while ignoring the incredible scoring effort.
The most unrealistic part of the Sounders playing the Sounders in a video game? At least one version of the club didn't come out victorious, which contrasts the unblemished mark of the real-life Sounders (3-0-0) heading into Saturday's match against the Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place (7 p.m. PT; JOEtv, YouTube TV, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM).
