With two U.S. Men’s National Team starters in his general vicinity all night and playing in a raucous atmosphere on the road, it’s safe to say that Los Angeles Galaxy defender Kofi Opare had his hands full on Sunday evening.

The 23-year-old however came through with flying colors, teaming up with Omar Gonzalez to hold the host Sounders to just one goal, and providing tidy defense to keep Eddie Johnson and Clint Dempsey under control for most of the night. It was a tough choice but Opare’s performance earned him SBI MLS Rookie of the Week.

Opare beat out Andrew Farrell, Kyle Bekker, and teammate Gyasi Zardes for this week’s honors.

What did you think of Opare’s performance? Which rookie stood out to you in MLS Week 36?
