Can't wait until the World Cup? These goals will help tide you over until Brazil and Croatia kick off on June 12.

Let's start out with former Real Salt Lake midfielder Will Johnson's stunning volley in the Portland Timbers' 4-3 loss to Vancouver on Sunday.

As good as that goal was, this one by the Colorado Rapids' Kamani Hill might be even better.

And finally ...

As strong as the Cougars have looked in PDL play this season, it takes something special to beat BYU (5-1). And this bicycle kick by FC Tucson's Odaine Sinclair was just that. Tucson (5-1) won Thursday's game and tied with the Cougars atop the PDL Mountain Division.
