VIDEO: Sporting KC's Dom Dwyer scores, takes celebration selfie

"I just scored and I will line up again but first let me take a Selfie," Sporting Kansas City's Dom Dwyer on Sunday, probably.

The striker for SKC scored in the first half of Sunday's match against the Chicago Fire when he turned an atrocious turnover from Patrick Ianni into a breakaway goal the bent into the back net off his left foot. Even if the turnover was terrible, it was a nice little finish with the goaltender challenging.

And of course because it was a goal in soccer, it required a celebration. Dwyer delivered and then some.

After scoring, Dwyer immediately ran toward the crowd and snatched a phone from a camera man behind the barrier. Armed with a phone and thus a camera, Dwyer along with Soony Saad, turned his back to the KC crowd but not to neglect them but instead to include them. In his celebration selfie.

Here was the end result. Nice smile, Dom.

The celebration might have resulted in quite the Facebook photo but it also predictably earned Dwyer a yellow card for his efforts but hey, who cares? He scored. Not to mention MLS has to enjoy the facetime for its players in the midst of the extremely successful World Cup showing in the US.

For Dwyer it was his 12th goal for the season, tied for second most in the MLS this season. Unfortunately for Dwyer, it wasn't a game-winner as Chicago equalized on a Mike Magee goal a few minutes later for the eventual 1-1 final score. But we'll always have Dwyer's selfie.
