In the 85th minute against San Jose on Saturday, the Houston Dynamo looked ready to take home a win with a 1-0 decision.

Uruguayan veteran forward Vicente Sánchez decided a one-goal lead wasn’t quite enough, though – and not only potted the go-ahead tally, but celebrated it with this ageless flip:

At 37-years old, Sanchez is one of the oldest players in Major League Soccer. Only Patrice Bernier, Nick Rimando, Andrea Pirlo, and 38-year-old Tim Howard sit ahead of him on the veteran side of the scale.

His ecstatic front-flip after the late-game goal, though? He looks like a young star again. And why not? First place in the west is a pretty good place to be sitting.
