Wilman Conde Selected to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week

By Frank Della Femina

Up until his 88th minute, match-tying goal against DC United last week, Red Bulls defender Wilman Conde was already having a strong game at left back. That Goal of the Week nominee (Reminder: Vote now!) only strengthened his position on the pitch, as the Red Bulls snagged a point on the road at RFK Stadium.

The staff at MLSsoccer.com took notice and added the Colombian defender to their Team of the Week roster. Here's what they had to say about Conde:

"The defender excelled in New York’s lone game of the week, a 2-2 midweek draw with D.C. United. Took to an unfamiliar role at left back with ease and provided a late equalizer with a top-drawer finish from outside the area."

Also worth noting, midfielder Dax McCarty is listed as an honorable mention, as his shutdown play in the midfield continues to receive heaps of praise.
