VIDEO: Watch Earthquakes Keeper David Bingham Score a 90 Yard Goal Against EPL's West Brom Albion

It's not everyday that a rookie MLS goalkeeper gets the opportunity to start a match, and even less likely to be against an English Premier League squad. But that is exactly what happened Tuesday night as the San Jose Earthquakes hosted West Bromwich Albion in a international friendly at Buck Shaw Stadium. With regular goalie Jon Busch sitting this match out, 21 year old David Bingham got the start for the Quakes in goal, and made the most out of his opportunity. 

Bingham, a former All-American at Cal, collected a ball in his box in the third minute of the match, dropping it to the ground to send it down the field to his teammates. But Bingham got all of it and then some as his kick took a very high bounce, bounding over the head of West Brom's keeper Boaz Myhill as he was blinded by the setting sun, finding it's way into the net for the most improbable of goals. Make the jump to see for yourself. 

Aside from his magenta/pink outfit, this clip is absolutely spot on.
