Mike Grella (and Sacha Kljestan and Damien Perrinelle) named to official MLS Team of Week 33

Of course he was.

Mike Grella led the New York Red Bulls' recovery from a disappointing midweek trip to Toronto by scoring the fastest goal in MLS history, setting the tone for a dominant 4-1 victory over Philadelphia Union that keeps RBNY's hopes of lifting the 2015 Supporters' Shield alive.

For his trouble, Grella is the only RBNY player named to the starting lineup of the official MLS Team of Week 33.

Congrats, Mike!

The bench also sees RBNY players Sacha Kljestan (steadily putting together one of the club's all-time best assist-making seasons) and Damien Perrinelle (the Red Bulls' defensive gegenpresser-in-chief) win recognition for their work this week.

Congrats to all!

The Red Bulls will travel to play Chicago Fire in Week 34, in search of the win that would almost certainly clinch the league's regular season title.
