Joel Lindpere of the New York Red Bulls is the MLS player of the Week for Week 16.
The Estonian international scored both goals in the Red Bulls’ 2-2 draw with San Jose on Saturday night. The goals came 7 minutes into the match and 5 minutes from the end.
Lindpere is the second Red Bull to win the honor after Luke Rodgers won in Week 5.
LA goalkeeper Brian Perk also figured in the voting after saving a crucial penalty in the match against the Sounders.
As in many other weeks, Andres Mendoza (Columbus), Brek Shea (FC Dallas) and Alvaro Saborio (RSL) feature perhaps testifying to a consistency in performance.
Tally Hall produced another outstanding performance in goal for Houston in a nationally televised game and also received recognition.
Darlington Nagbe (POR), Andy Najar (DC United), CJ Sapong (SKC) and Sebastien Le Toux (PHI) received second choice votes
