Tesho Akindele is quickly becoming one of the top rookies in Major League Soccer.

Akindele scored his second goal of July this past Saturday, going one-on-one against New England Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth before beating him to seal a 2-0 win for FC Dallas. The goal was the Canadian forward’s third of the season, and helped him win SBI’s MLS Rookie of the Week award.

Akindele beat out a list of candidates that included Steve Birnbaum, Harry Shipp and Bradford Jamison to claim the honor.
