Holgersson Named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week

Watch: The Moment - Holgersson's Second

Red Bulls defender Markus Holgersson has been named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week.

The honor comes following his performance against the Houston Dynamo, in which he tallied his second goal of the season off a great set up from Tim Cahill. Holgersson's goal stood as the game-winner, as New York exacted its revenge on the Dynamo in a 2-0 win at Red Bull Arena.

MLSsoccer.com had this to say about Holgersson's placement in the Team of the Week's back line:

"A complete performance from the Swedish center back, who remained sturdy at the back (helped by Dax McCarty, of course) and scored an easy finish that ultimately stood up as the game-winner against Houston."

The Red Bulls also had a number of honorable mentions in the mix as well, as Cahill, Connor Lade, Dax McCarty, Roy Miller and Heath Pearce all received consideration for the Starting XI.

New York's back in action Sunday when they host the Portland Timbers for a 7 PM kick off on MSG+. Get tickets now at Red Bulls Ticket Central or by calling 877.RB.SOCCER.
