Week 18 of the 2022 Major League Soccer campaign saw some unreal efforts.

FC Dallas' Alan Velasco made a case for himself with a first-half free kick that overwhelmed Inter Miami goalkeeper Drake Callender, while Chicharito connected with Efrain Alvarez to make his way back into the list.

Too many to choose from this Holiday weekend, but these are the best goals from Week 18...

5. Chicharito (vs. CF Montreal)

The Mexican forward made his way back to the scoresheet on Sunday against CF Montreal. It only took Chicharito eight minutes to get a goal down, connecting with Efrain Alvarez to manage the right-footed shot into the center of the goal.

With the striker's help, LA Galaxy triumphed 4-0 over their Eastern Conference opponent.

4. Jarosław Niezgoda (vs. Nashville SC)

Portland's efforts might not have been enough to win the match, but Jarosław Niezgoda's goal vs. Nashville still deserves a spot on this list. The player's left-footed strike from the center of the box to the top left corner managed the 70th minute equalizer the Timbers desperately needed.

Portland walked away with a point, boosting their spot to 10th on the Western Conference table.

3. Dylan Borrero (vs. FC Cincinnati)

The Revolution kicked off the scoring against FC Cincinnati with a stunning goal by Dylan Borrero. The winger found Sebastian Lletget before completing the left-footed rocket into the bottom right corner. Cincy goalkeeper Roman Celentano attempted to make the save, but there was nothing left to do.

Despite the stunning effort, the Revolution only walked away with one point after a 2-2 draw.

2. Alan Velasco (vs. Inter Miami)

We love a good set piece goal.

Alan Velasco comes in second place on the list after his stunning free kick attempt against Inter Miami in the first half. The right-footed attempt to the bottom right corner was too much for goalkeeper Drake Callender to stop, gaining FC Dallas the lead.

Inter Miami ultimately found the equalizer with a 89th minute goal by Campana, but Velasco deserves this credit.

1. Sean Davis (vs. Portland Timbers)

And at the top of this week's list: Sean Davis. His goal from just outside the box to the top right corner is one to watch.

It was also the player's first goal as a Nashville SC player, and what a way to commemorate that.
