Nagamura up for Goal of the Week

Chivas USA midfielder Paulo Nagamura - who equaled his goal scoring totals from the '07 and '08 seasons (2) in a five-minute span in the second half of Saturday's win against Colorado - was nominated for the Sierra Mist Goal of the Week for his first goal.

The play occured in the 55th minute of the match, when Nagamura passed to Maykel Galindo, who played a ball up toward forward Justin Braun.

"I screamed to [Justin] to just leave it to me because I had a perfect shot," said 'Paulinho' after the match. "I had a pretty good hit."

Very true - but unfortunately for Paulo, the Goal of the Week nominees this week are an especially strong bunch. Davy Arnaud from Kansas City is on the list for a vicious strike from about 25 yards, and FC Dallas' Kenny Cooper scored from his own half against Chicago, among others.
