Week 25 of the 2015 Major League Soccer season is in the books, and 27 goals in nine games later (including a couple five-spots — looking at you, LA Galaxy and Toronto FC), we can finally say it’s stretch-run time in MLS.
Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy and TFC land multiple players in the Week 25 Team of the Week — as do the San Jose Earthquakes — with the former nabbing an unheard of (but wholly warranted) four of eleven spots. Robbie Keane scored twice and set up two more goals; Giovani dos Santos scored one, set up another and was a terror for 90 minutes; Sebastian Lletget matched Dos Santos’ output and threw in a succulent backheel flick to tally his assist, just for good measure.
David Bingham recorded to clean sheets last week as the Earthquakes won twice by a combined score of 7-0, on the back of three goals scored by Chris Wondolowski. Tasked with marking Kaka for the entirety of 90 minutes, TFC midfielder Collen Warner did exactly that while also accumulating 100 touches of the ball (TFC had a man advantage for 54 minutes).
Thoughts? Questions? Agreements? Disagreements? (Of course not.) Leave them in the comments section, as always. I’m not afraid to defend my picks.
