On a night when returning U.S. Men’s National team standouts Graham Zusi and Matt Besler turned in outstanding showings just days after playing key parts in the U.S. team’s tie vs. Mexico, it might have been easy to overlook the impressive night of their World Cup veteran teammate.
Benny Feilhaber turned in his best game of the season, and the kind of game Sporting KC was hoping for when they traded for him last winter, when he helped set up both goals and finished a thoroughly complete performance in KC’s 2-0 win over previously unbeaten Montreal. His performance made him SBI’s MLS Player of the Week.
Feilhaber beat out Zusi, Portland’s Will Johnson, Real Salt Lake’s Luis Gil and New York’s Thierry Henry for this week’s honors.
What did you think of Feilhaber’s performance? Which MLS player impressed you the most in MLS Week Five?
