Barcelona’s Thiago Welcomes Man U GK De Gea With Awesome Goal

In cased you missed it, Champions League finalists Barcelona and Manchester Unitedfaced off in our nation’s capital as part of the major European club’s  “Let’s make mad bank from American soccer fans” tour this past Saturday night. The match itself was nothing to write home about, save for this pretty impressive goal by Thiago.

In the 70th minute of the match, the Spanish midfielder tied it up at one goal a piece with a mid-length bomb from about 20 yards out. The shot caught Manchester United’s newly minted keeper David De Gea off guard. The 20-year-old goalie was frozen in his steps and could do nothing but watch the ball sail in for a goal.

The Red Devils had the last laugh, however. Thanks to a goal by Michael Owen, Manchester United were able to avenge their 3-1 Champions League finals loss by snatching this pre-season victory away from the Catalan club.
