Literally.

MLS: Toronto FC at Philadelphia Union Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

With the Union trailing the Chicago Fire by a goal in the waning moments of the match, Jim Curtin turned to his bench in search of a late equalizer.

Enter Jay Simpson.

Only 64 seconds after coming into the game, the English striker stepped up and just booted the hell out of a ball. This thing soared over the goal, over the stands, and over the concourse before clanging off a video board and bouncing straight back onto the field.

The Union lost the game, 3-2.
