MLS Playoffs: Colorado Rapids' Gashi scores incredible goal from 40 yards out

Shkelzen Gashi found a way to make his presence felt in his first MLS Playoffs. The Swiss midfielder scored for the Colorado Rapids on Sunday in the second leg of the Western Conference semifinal with a thumping golazo from way, way out. Take a look at the video below as that goal drew the Rapids level, 1-1, on aggregate.

Oh, and don't worry if when you see the beginning of the highlight you think he is crazy for taking a shot from there. Watch it all the way through.

That's a deliberate attempt, and a golazo. The former Basel man stuns even the home crowd with that piece of magic.

Game on as they go to extra time.
