The 5,000th MLS Goal
|...should happen very soon.|
Going into this season the number was 4,672 (regular season only). This year 250 goals have been scored already, for a total of 4,922, only 78 away. Going by this season's goals per game average (2.78), goal number 5,000 should be scored on August 6.
1-Eric Wynalda, SJ vs DC (4/6/96)
500-Ben Iroha, SJ vs DAL (9/11/96)
1,000-Thomas Dooley, CLB vs KC (9/14/97)
2,000-Alex Bunbury, KC at TB (7/3/99)
3,000-Sasha Victorine, LA @ TB (5/9/01) (EDIT)
4,000-Mark Chung, COL vs LA (6/25/03)
EDIT, 8/2: Finally, MLS has noticed. Of course, I did end up having one of the goals wrong. Victorine scored the 3,000th in 2001. They were at 2,907 entering the year, and apparently I was using the 93rd goal of 2000 instead...that sucks.
