Watch: Timbers’ Lucas Melano pulls off front-flip dive
Portland Timbers forward Lucas Melano pulled off what may be the dive of the year on Saturday, doing a front flip to draw a foul.
After being touched on the back by a Real Salt Lake player, Melano took an instant to think before deciding to do a forward tuck-and-roll with the referee nearby.
The referee seemed to spot Melano as he hit the ground, immediately blowing his whistle and issuing the foul.
The move was arguable to top moment for Melano in a game where he scored his first goal of the season.
