It was satisfying enough when New England Revolution midfielder Lee Nguyen scored a pair of goals against the Vancouver Whitecaps on May 12 to help the Revolution to a 4-1 victory.

Vancouver had waived Nguyen the week before the season started.

Now comes the icing on the cake. Nguyen's second goal in that game is one of four finalists for Major League Soccer's goal of the year award. Also nominated: Seattle's Patrick Ianni on June 20 vs. Sporting KC; Seattle's Fredy Montero vs. Los Angeles on May 2; and Portland's Darlington Nagbe vs. Real Salt Lake on March 31.

Voting is conducted online on the MLS web site and via text message (text GOTY to 22442 and follow the instructions sent back to you. Ianni is G1, Nguyen G2, Montero G3 and Nagbe G4). Voting ends Tuesday at 11:59 p.m., and the winner will be announced on Thursday.

Watch Nguyen's goal above, and all the finalists in the video below.
