Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis said ahead of the 4-3 defeat to the New York Red Bulls that he wasn’t sure how fit his star forward Alvaro Saborio would be coming back from international duty. Turns out Saborio was clicking on all cylinders.
Scoring all of his team’s goals, Saborio finished off his hat-trick in stunning style, with a toe poke towards the upper 90 from just inside the box. The Costa Rican’s performance earned him the honor of SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Saborio beat out Red Bulls midfielder Dax McCarty, Toronto FC’s Bobby Convey, and Chicago Fire forward Mike Magee for this week’s award.
What did you think of Saborio’s performance? Which player stood out to you in MLS Week 22?
