The opening day of MLS action provided plenty of goals as players throughout the league stepped up to provide one of the more exciting starts to league play in recent memory.
With 36 goals scored in just 10 games, players like Mike Magee and Ignacio Piatti asserted themselves as dominant while leading their teams to victory with vital finishes. Behind them, stars like Mauro Diaz pulled the strings, while a pair of centerbacks even got in on the action with some finishes of their own.
That’s not to say that defense was nowhere to be seen. Teams like Toronto FC and the San Jose Earthquakes put in resolute defensive performances, while one of the league’s star offseason additions, Ashley Cole, put in an impressive shift in an LA Galaxy win.
Here are this week’s selections for the SBI MLS Best XI:
HONORABLE MENTION: Brian Rowe, Matt Besler, Drew Moor, Maynor Figueroa, Diego Chara, Diego Valeri, Sebastian Lletget, Dominic Oduro, Cyle Larin, Will Bruin, Sebastian Giovinco, Joao Plata, Chris Wondolowski
