Nashville SC's Eric Miller added some extra spin on his cross in the 38th minute to set up attacking midfielder Hany Mukhtar for a goal in an Eastern Conference semifinal playoff against the Philadelphia Union on Sunday.

Once Miller received a pass from defender Alistair Johnston along the sideline, Miller cast his eyes on Mukhtar sprinting into the 18-yard box and dropped a dime pass for Mukhtar to head the ball passed goalkeeper Andre Blake. Nashville took the lead, 1-0, with Mukhtar's 19th goal of 2021.

Mukhtar is a finalist for the MLS MVP award.
