In the MLS alot of the debate surrounding the Designated Player(DP) is if it is worth it to shell out the amount of money for a dynamic player that may or may not change your teams results. Now in Vancouver as an expansion team, the Whitecaps chose frenchman Eric Hassli. Since the season has begun, Hassli has provided the headlines with either gloom or glory. Within the 10 games he has played he has 6 Goals & 5 Red Cards, so Hassli is as predictable as a roulette wheel in Monaco.
This past Saturday, he chose to add to his glory account with a wonder strike that capitalized off horrible clearance from neighboring rivals Seattle Sounders. Being able to pounce on the mistake, chip the ball to himself while evading a defender, not to mention providing a volley before the chip hit the ground. Did we note that he was going away from the net. This DP is worth every red cent.
