Photo by ISIPhotos.com


The San Jose Earthquakes and Vancouver Whitecaps desperately needed victories last week to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the goal-scoring prowess of Camilo Sanvezzo and Steven Lenhart helped both teams find those sorely-needed wins.

Sanvezzo’s brace in Vancouver’s 3-0 win vs. Montreal, and Lenhart’s double in the Earthquakes’ 2-1 win vs. Real Salt Lake, helped earn both a place in the SBI MLS Best XI for Week 31.

Sanvezzo had some help in leading Vancouver to victory. Teammates David Ousted and Lee Young Pyo also earned spots on this week’s Best XI after combining to help shut out Montreal at Stade Saputo.

Portland playmaker Diego Valeri continued to make a case for MVP consideration with his game-winning goal vs. Colorado, a showing that made him an easy Best XI this week.

Here is this week’s SBI MLS Best XI for Week 31:
