If there’s one thing you can’t accuse Real Salt Lake midfielder Luke Mulholland of, it’s a lack of dedication to the cause.

With the Salt Lake defence attempting to scramble a dangerous ball clear against Sporting KC yesterday, Mulholland showed the kind of grunt that would make Scott Parker look like a lily-livered pinko whimbrel.

Realising he couldn’t reach the ball through the crowd, Mulholland instead attempted to ram the goalposts out of harm’s way using nothing but his head…

GIF version, just in case…

Good head, son! Now get up and run it off.

For the record, Real Salt Lake won 2-1, entirely thanks to Mulholland’s goal-line heroism.
