Fagundez named MLS player of the week
Revs midfielder Diego Fagundez was voted Major League Soccer’s player of the week for Week 14 following his one-goal, two-assist effort in the Revolution’s 5-0 victory over the LA Galaxy on Sunday.
Fagundez, just 18 years old, has scored a goal in four straight games. He set up Saer Sene and Lee Nguyen for the game’s first two goals, before scoring his fifth goal of the season in the 87th minute.
Sunday was the first multiple-point game of Fagundez’s career, and his first career multiple-assist game. His four-game goals scoring streak is the Revs’ longest goal-scoring streak since 2005 when Clint Dempsey scored in five straight games between April 9 and May 7.
