2017 Union Celebration of the Year Winner

In the last fan vote of the year, Union fans flocked to vote for the Union's Celebration of the Year. And the celly's didn't disappoint. 

However, there was one that clearly stood above the rest: Ilsinho's DX chop. 

Ilsinho's celebraion came after his goal in the 38th minute against Houston Dynamo, which doubled the Union's lead to 2-0 in the first half. Ilsinho scored thanks to impressive passing by CJ Sapong and Chris Pontius, both of whom ended up with an assist on the play. 

At first, Ilsinho celebrated his first goal of the season in normal fashion, pointing up into the stands. However, after getting mobbed by his teammates, Ilsinho decided to add a little extra by dancing to the DOOP song. 

It was an iconic celebration, one that fans loved when it happened and once again during the voting. 

Congratulations Ilsinho. We expect another DX chop for this winner too.
