Joel Lindpere Named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week

By Frank Della Femina

Joel Lindpere was named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week after he put on an industrious effort against the Montreal Impact Saturday night.

Lindpere may not have lit up the scoreboard, but he did make his presence known with his signature hustle that helped create the Red Bulls' game-winning goal, courtesy of Dane Richards.

MLSsoccer.com writes:

Down a man, the Red Bulls had to grind one out against Montreal over the weekend and did just that, in large part thanks to Lindpere’s effort in the center of the pitch, where he helped set up Dane Richards’ winner and got a call to the Estonian national team for his troubles.

Forward Kenny Cooper, who scored his 10th goal of the season on a penalty kick in Montreal, was added as an honorable mention.

Lindpere was also included in ProSoccerTalk.com's Team of the Week, alongside Red Bulls defender Markus Holgersson.

The Red Bulls will look to extend their win streak to six straight tonight when they host Chivas USA on the pitch at Red Bull Arena. New York remains a perfect 4-0-1 at home this season.
