Roy Miller Scores A Goal...For His Team

Roy Miller, best known for spectacular own goals and boneheaded moves, scored last night in Costa Rica's World Cup qualifying win over Honduras.

Last night, Honduras made the trip to Costa Rica in a pivotal World Cup qualifying match for the hosts. With a win or draw, Costa Rica stayed in the hunt for CONCACAF's three automatic bids.

Enter, Roy Miller. In the game's 25th minute, he lobs a header over Honduras keeper Noel Valladares, scoring the game's only goal, clinching the three points for his home country (who, by the way, lead the Hexagonal on goal differential).

Really, we can laugh about Miller's penchant for scoring own goals -- looking for the above highlight I searched for "roy miller goal" and the first link was to his "brilliant finish" against D.C. United in last year's playoffs -- but as of late he's moved on from that.

Ever since the break spurred on by his transformation from left back to human train wreck against the San Jose Earthquakes, he's got his game back together. In that light, it's nice to see him score.
