Angel named MLS Player of the Week

New York Red Bulls forward Juan Pablo Angel was voted Major League Soccer Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for Week 13 of the 2010 Major League Soccer season. Angel scored twice in the Red Bulls’ 3-0 victory over the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday, June 26 at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.

Saturday’s two goal effort was Angel’s 11th career multi-goal game in his MLS career.

Angel scored the Red Bulls’ second goal of the match in the 82nd minute, when he collected a Bouna Coundoul long ball and warded off defender Aaron Hohlbein before firing a first-time shot past Wizards keeper Jimmy Nielsen. Angel added his 2nd goal of the match in the 90th minute. The Colombian again bested Hohlbein, taking control of the ball on the right side of the box. Near the goal line, Angel rounded an oncoming Nielsen and slotted the ball into the vacant net.

The award was Angel’s fourth MLS Player of the Week award, winning previously in Weeks 7 and 19 in 2007 and Week 20 in 2008.
