He received an average of 45 percent of the vote in balloting by players, media and club management that was announced Thursday. He will miss Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Mexico because of a hamstring injury.

Philadelphia right back Keegan Rosenberry was second at 31 percent, followed by New York City midfielder Jack Harrison at 15 percent.
