MLS Team of the Week — Stars of Week 2

1 Comment

Week 2 of the 2015 Major League Soccer season is in the books. If you watched all the non-action of Week 1 and stuck around for the second weekend, you were handsomely rewarded.

Week 1: 16 goals in 10 games. Week 2: 25 goals in 8 games.

The massive upswing in goals and free-flowing play made picking the midfielders and forwards for this week’s Team of the Week significantly more difficult — and enjoyable.

Thoughts? Questions? Agreements? Disagreements? (Of course not.) Leave them in the comments section, as always. I’m not afraid to defend my picks.
