The New York Red Bulls turned in their most complete performance of the season last weekend at RFK Stadium and a trio of standouts led the charge to victory over D.C. United.
Thierry Henry, Dax McCarty and Jamison Olave drove the Red Bulls to their first road win of the season, and their efforts in beating D.C. United earned them all places on the SBI MLS Best XI for Week Seven.
Portland Timbers teammates Will Johnson and Futty Danso made the cut as well after Portland’s physical 1-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes.
The race for the goalkeeper spot was a tough one this week, but reigning SBI MLS Player of the Week Joe Bendik edged out Nick Rimando and Bobby Shuttlesworth for this week’s Best XI honors.
Here is the rest of the SBI MLS Best XI for Week Seven:
