Week 26 of the MLS season was all about dynamic duos around the league.
Whether it was the New England tandem of Kelyn Rowe and Diego Fagundez, or Montreal’s pair of Marco DiVaio and Felipe Martins, or Real Salt Lake combo of Kyle Beckerman and Javier Morales, attacking tandems led the way in a week that featured plenty of attacking fireworks.
All six of the aforementioned players earned spots in the SBI MLS Best XI this week, beating out a stacked field of attacking options that left us with an Honorable Mention list stronger than some Best XI teams we have seen.
One MLS newcomer who wasted little time establishing himself in his new league is Jaime Penedo. The Panamanian goalkeeper was outstanding in recording the shutout in the Los Angeles Galaxy’s 1-0 victory vs. the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Here is the full SBI MLS Best XI for Week 26:
