Showing off quickness, nifty dribbling and sharp passing, Portland Timbers midfielder Khalif Alhassan has quickly established himself as one of Portland's most dangerous players, and his performances in the Timbers two victories last week helped earn him SBI MLS Player of the Week honors for Week five.
Alhassan kept pressure on Chicago defenders throughout last Thursday's 4-2 win against Chicago, but really put on a show on Sunday against FC Dallas, setting up a pair of goals and toying with a normally-tough FC Dallas defense.
Alhassan edged out New York striker Luke Rodgers and D.C. United midfielder Chris Pontius for this week's honors.
Who do you think was Player of the Week? Did Alhassan get your vote or did you prefer Rodgers?
