Last Wednesday, the Vancouver Whitecaps not only kept their playoff chances alive with a superb 4-1 victory at the Seattle Sounders, but forward Kekuta Manneh wrote his name into the record books.

The 18-year-old Gambian became the youngest player in Major League Soccer history to score a hat-trick when he bagged three goals in 54 minutes to lead the Whitecaps to victory on the road. Manneh’s performance made him an easy selection for SBI MLS Player of the Week.

Manneh beat out Jose Goncalves, Mike Magee, and Kalif Alhassan for this week’s honors.
