Juninho gets revenge with game-winning penalty kick in LA Galaxy's win over Real Salt Lake

 

Juninho has been dreaming of another crack at Nick Rimando since the Real Salt Lake goalkeeper denied him a chance at a game-winner earlier this month.
This time when that opportunity presented itself, Juninho made the most of his chance. The Brazilian midfielder buried the game-winning penalty kick in the seventh minute past Rimando, sealing the Galaxy’s second straight victory, and atoning for his stoppage time penalty kick miss more than 20 days ago. He said: "It felt so good afterwards. I knew I had to score this time against Rimando. This time I hit it hard and low and could help my teammates get a win tonight."
