Watch: Villa's 50-yard chip dispatches Union

David Villa, take a bow.

Up 1-0 in the dying moments of Friday’s clash at the Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania, New York City FC‘s Villa scored a goal that Philadelphia Union shot-stopper Andre Blake will not soon forget.

The chip just inside the halfway line got the best of the backpedaling Jamaican international and cemented NYCFC’s first away win of the campaign to move Patrick Vieira’s lot joint-top with Columbus ahead of the Crew’s visit from Toronto FC Saturday.

At the other end of the table, the Union sit bottom of the Eastern Conference on two points and without a win in their last 13 matches dating back to last season.
