Edson Buddle and Juninho teamed up on the Los Angeles Galaxy's game-winning goal last Saturday and they're teaming up on this week's SBI MLS Best XI.
Buddle's two goals made him the easiest pick for this week's team, while Juninho made the squad after his best performance since joining the Galaxy.
Among the players to make the squad for the first time was Joe Cannon, who edged out Bouna Coundoul after his stellar effort in shutting out New England in San Jose's 2-0 win. He is joined by Ike Opara, who just might become a regular on the Best XI.
Here is this week's MLS Best XI for Week Four:
SBI MLS Best XI (Week Four)
——–Brian McBride—-Edson Buddle—-Juan Pablo Angel———
Dwayne DeRosario————————————-Bobby Convey
———Tim Ream—Jhon Kennedy Hurtado——Ike Opara——-
HONORABLE MENTION– Bouna Coundoul, Mike Chabala, Wilman Conde, Marvell Wynne, Omar Gonzalez, Patrick Nyarko, Roger Torres, Joey Gjertsen, Geoff Cameron, Joel Lindpere, Landon Donovan, Conor Casey.
(I replaced Landon Donovan on the first team with Bobby Convey, who should definitely have a spot on the first team this week.)
