Atlanta United: Many fans have been left drooling over build-up for goal

Atlanta United may have only taken a draw against Montreal Impact, but at least their goal from the game was a thing of beauty.

The team put together 14 slick yet effective passes before the ball fell to Julian Gressel, who touched the ball out of his feet with his first touch and sent it into the net with his second.

Atlanta United’s official Twitter account posted about the brilliance behind the goal that opened the game’s scoring:

The style of play is very important for Atlanta fans and players alike, as signified by the fact Leandro Gonzalez Pires and Ezequiel Barco complained about Frank de Boer’s initial defensively focused tactics, as per MLS Soccer.

Therefore, it is understandable that this aesthetically brilliant move and finish has brought a lot of satisfaction to many Atlanta fans.

They will now be hoping that they can prepare for the play-offs with a goal of a similar ilk against New England Revolution.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the goal, including posts from admiring Atlanta fans, can be seen below:
