Costa Rican striker Alvaro Saborio has been a star in his native country for years, and one of the more underrated strikers in CONCACAF for some time, but now MLS fans are finding out just why the striker is so dangerous.

Saborio delivered his best performance to date since joining Real Salt Lake, netting a pair of quality goals (and coming within a rattled post of a hat-trick) to help RSL beat Houston last Thursday. The performance earned Saborio SBI MLS Player of the Week honors (as well as the official league honor).

Saborio beat out Kansas City's Kei Kamara, who's own two-goal effort helped the Wizards salvage a 2-2 tie vs. Chicago, and Stefan Frei, who helped Toronto FC pull off a stunning 0-0 tie against the unbeaten Los Angeles Galaxy.
