SBI MLS Player of the Week: Juninho

In one of the easier selections we'll have to make, Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Juninho was chosen as SBI's MLS Player of the Week for Week 1 of the MLS season.

Juninho was the easy choice after scoring a pair of goals to help the Galaxy post a season-opening 1-0 win against Seattle and a 1-1 tie against New England. He delivered a pair of long-range blasts to keep the Galaxy unbeaten despite opening the season without starting goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts and defender Omar Gonzalez.

Juninho had the advantage of playing in two games this week, which gave him an edge over some other worthy candidates for the honors, including Vancouver's Eric Hassli, Sporting Kansas City's Omar Bravo and New York's Juan Agudelo to name a few.

What did you think of Juninho's performances this week? Who got your vote for Player of the Week this week?
