Juan Pablo Angel is back.
At least that is what the New York Red Bulls are hoping after he delivered the game-winning goal in the Red Bulls 2-1 win against Los Angeles on Saturday. Angel delivered his best performance of the season, showing mobility and purpose and finally finding the net after going scoreless to start the season.
This week’s MLS Best XI boasts a definite veteran feel, with Steve Ralston and Cuauhtemoc Blanco taking the lead in the midfield.
Angel wasn’t the lone Red Bull to earn Best XI honors. Goalkeeper Jon Conway delivered a clutch performance while Dave Van Den Bergh pestered and neutralized David Beckham all night.
Here is how this week’s SBI MLS Best XI shapes up:
