Michael Parkhurst, wonder goal

Michael Parkhurst of the New England Revolution is leading a charmed life. He's a professional soccer player, playing for the team he supported as a child (his parents took him to the first-ever Revolution game). He won Rookie of the Year in 2005, and he's also won fan awards for his charity work. He's also recently been called to play for the United States. And now, finally, he's being compared to David Beckham.

Parkhurst, a defender, had never scored a goal as a professional until now. He scored on his first ever shot. Take a look:
