Dwyer got a breakaway in the first half, and slotted the ball home against the Chicago Fire. He then ran to the stands to take a selfie with teammate Soony Saad and the fans behind them.
It seemed like it was a premeditated gimmick, but he (and SKC’s PR staff) probably didn’t anticipate a third step:
Step 3: Take a yellow card.
As it was, Dwyer’s selfie goal wasn’t enough for Sporting Kansas City: the game ended in a 1-1 draw. At least he’ll have the memories.
