For players looking to end a goal-scoring drought, one goal is usually enough to help end the skid and provide a confidence boost. For Marco Pappa, one goal wasn't enough as he provided a reminder of just how dangerous a player he can be.
Pappa's hat-trick performance in Chicago's 3-0 beating of Real Salt Lake was one of the best games of the season and made Pappa the easy pick for MLS Player of the Week this week. He didn't just score, but he scored in impressive fashion.
Pappa edged out a good field of candidates that included Fredy Montero, Kei Kamara and Eddie Gaven to name a few.
What did you think of Pappa's performance? Who would have gotten your vote this week?
