In which the prestigious honour of scoring the first ever goal during the first ever game at MLS side Sporting KC’s brand new $200 million ‘Livestrong Sporting Park’ stadium goes to an impressively quick bloke in a ropey cow costume that tear-arsed onto the pitch in the 80th minute…

A cow broke the duck – how fitting.

Despite Cow Man’s best efforts (he was later arrested for his troubles) the drab encounter between KC and Chicago Fire finished goalless, despite the fact that Kansas had their ‘keeper sent off after about an hour and the officials eventually tagged a whopping 11, count ’em, 11 minutes of injury time onto the end of the game.

From what we gather of the match, you can basically consider this video as the entire highlights reel.
