Bradley Wright-Phillips had a pretty good Week 26 of the MLS regular season. Yes, the New York Red Bulls were overwhelmed in Chicago, downed 3-2 by a Fire team that was far more dominant than the scoreline suggests. But, in common with his teammates, he bounced back for the big game: at home against D.C. United - a match with both rivalry and Eastern Conference title implications.
And he also has a place in MLS's official Team of Week 26 as reward for his efforts. Congratulations!
Sacha Kljestan is up for MLS Player of the Month (vote for him!) after a very productive August. His week was more eventful than BWP's: a goal and a controversial assist against Chicago, and another assist against D.C. United. Kljestan is afforded a place on the official Team of the Week's bench for his work in Week 26.
