Throughout the 2015 Major League Soccer season, every week we’ve taken a look back at the previous round of league games and pieced together our very own Team of the Week. Today, given that we’re near the halfway point of the season (depending on which team you use as a barometer), we’ll compile all of those previous Teams of the Week to form an MLS Best XI squad, so far.
Columbus Crew SC’s Kei Kamara leads the league in scoring (12 goals) at the halfway point, while teammate Ethan Finlay leads the league in assists (10). Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco is tied for second in goals and assists combined (15).
The full mid-season MLS Best XI is as follows:
Goalkeeper: David Ousted (Vancouver Whitecaps)
Defenders: Kendall Waston (Vancouver Whitecaps), Matt Miazga (New York Red Bulls), Alvas Powell (Portland Timber), Kemar Lawrence (New York Red Bulls)
Midfielders: Sebastian Giovinco (Toronto FC), Fabian Castillo (FC Dallas), Ethan Finlay (Columbus Crew SC), Benny Feilhaber (Sporting Kansas City)
Forwards: Kei Kamara (Columbus Crew SC), Octavio Rivero (Vancouver Whitecaps)
