The Columbus Crew have propelled themselves into the Eastern Conference playoff race on the strength of a pair of victories this past week, and no player was more important in securing those victories than Federico Higuain.
The Argentine newcomer was instrumental in last Wednesday's 2-1 win vs. Toronto FC by playing a part in both goals, then he scored a pair of beautiful free kick goals in the Crew's 4-3 victory against New England on Saturday. Those performances made Higuain the pick to be this week's SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Higuain beat out a loaded field of contenders for the honor, a group that included Fredy Montero, Patrice Bernier and Alan Gordon.
What did you think of Higuain's performance? Which MLS player impressed you the most last week?
