(Wondering who the best players were in last weekend’s MLS matches? Here is my take on the MLS Best XI for Week Two in what will be the first installment of a weekly series, and yes, it will run earlier in the week from now on.)
In a week were goals were scored in bunches and great defensive performances were more scarce than memorable attacking displays, it wasn’t easy trying to piece together the defensive side of an MLS Best XI for Week Two. The goalkeeper candidate list was a short one, as was the one for defenders.
SBI MLS Player of the Week Chad Barrett as well as Los Angeles Galaxy tandem David Beckham and Landon Donovan lead this week’s installment of the SBI Best XI for Week Two:
—-Landon Donovan———Kenny Cooper———-Chad Barrett——
Dave Van Den Bergh—————————————Arturo Alvarez
——————-David Beckham——-Sacha Kljestan——————–
Kevin Goldthwaite———–Jimmy Conrad————–Sean Franklin
The Red Bulls and Los Angeles Galaxy led the way with three players apiece while FC Dallas boasted two selections.
