WATCH: Junior Burgos scores match-winning goal for Tampa Bay Rowdies

While this may never appear in any history book, this could very well be the first ever goal scored by an Atlanta United player, technically. Junior Burgos is on-loan with the Tampa Bay Rowdies from AUFC. The club have an option to pick up his contract for the 2017 MLS season if they choose to do so.

Moments like this will surely help the El Salvadorean's cause. He scored the winning goal today for the Rowdies during their preseason trip to England. Playing against League Two side Notts County, Burgos broke a 2-2 deadlock with this solo effort in the 81st minute. (1:29 of the video)

Burgos collects the ball in the midfield, dribbles past several players, then strikes a low shot past the keeper and into the net to win the match for the NASL side. A great moment of brilliance for the potential Atlanta United player and one that the club's front office will surely take notice of.
