On Monday April the 28th, Major League Soccer announced that D.C. United forward Fabian Espindola had been named to the MLS Team of the Week. The award is given to the players who had the best performances during the previous week of MLS matches.
On a weekend that saw some particularly fantastic performances, Espindola's two goals and one assist stand out, as he was able to extend United's unbeaten run to five matches with a 4-1 victory over F.C. Dallas. Although Dallas was down a man for most of the match, United had not come back from a goal deficit to secure points since September of last year when the club drew with the Los Angeles Galaxy by a score of 2-2.
