MLS team of the week: Donovan continues to thrive on farewell tour

USA Flag 2

LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan was once again the star of the week in MLS, with two goals and two assists helping his side to a 6-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids.

GK – Bill Hamid (D.C. United)

Hamid has been a huge part of D.C.’s bounce back season, and it was no different on the weekend, with a starring performance in his side’s 0-0 draw on the road to Vancouver.

RB – Sheanon Williams (Philadelphia Union)

Consecutive clean sheets helped the Union claim back-to-back wins over Toronto this week, and Williams even bagged himself two assists in the return fixture.

CB – Jamison Olave (New York Red Bulls)

The Veteran Colombian’s defensive performance helped the Red Bulls snatch a 2-1 win over reigning MLS Cup champions Sporting KC, pushing the club back into post-season contention in the process.

CB – Jose Goncalves (New England Revolution)

The 2013 MLS Defender of the Year put in two outstanding outings at the back in 3-1 and 2-1 wins over SKC and the Chicago Fire this week, even picking up an assist in the latter matchup.

LB – Waylon Francis (Columbus Crew)

Francis has been one of the more underrated performers in MLS so far this season, and he was on form again in the Crew’s routine 3-0 win over perennial bottom-dwellers Chivas USA.

RM – Lee Nguyen (New England Revolution)

The Revs’ midfield talisman put his name further into MVP discussion with two goals against SKC, before adding an assist against the Fire on the weekend.

CM – Diego Valeri (Portland Timbers)

The Argentine DP assisted all three of his side’s goals in their draw with the San Jose Earthquakes and could have even created a few more.

LM – Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy)

Two goals and two assists in LA’s 6-0 thumping of the Colorado Rapids means it’s now five goals and seven assists for Donovan in the past five games. Not bad for someone who’s planning to retire at the end of the season.

FW – Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)

Much like Donovan, Zardes has been on top form too in recent weeks, bagging his 13th and 14th goals of the season in the win over Colorado to maintain his status as the League’s leading American scorer.

FW – Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

Wondolowski continued his scoring tear on the weekend with two goals and an assist in the dramatic 3-3 draw with the Timbers, although San Jose's playoff hopes are looking decidedly slim at this stage of the campaign.

FW – Justin Meram (Columbus Crew)

After almost four seasons, the past month has seen Meram’s long-awaited breakout, as the striker netted twice in the win over Chivas to make it five goals in five games.
