NEW YORK, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- New York Red Bulls forward Juan Pablo Angel, who had a goal and an assist last week, was selected the Major League Soccer player of the week.
His goal and assist in the Red Bulls’ 3-0 victory Saturday over Toronto FC gave him 10 goals and three assists on the season. He opened the scoring in the game by converting a pass from Clint Mathis. Early in the second half Angel set up a goal by Jozy Altidore.
It was the second MLS player of the week award for Angel, who also won in the seventh week of the season. He also claimed player of the month awards for May and June.
