Well done Daniel Steres! The LA Galaxy defender was named to the MLS Team of the Week for a stellar performance at BC Place vs. the Whitecaps, playing a vital role in helping the blue white and gold earn their first shutout of the 2018 season.
Deployed as a center back in a 3-5-2 formation, the Burbank native was active all night, racking up eleven clearances, five aerial duels won, four interceptions and two tackles. With Michael Ciani still nursing a groin pull, the 27-year old’s stock has risen as he looks to find a way back into the starting lineup.
Goal scoring Columbus Crew left back Milton Valenzuela and Timbers center back Bill Tuiloma join Steres with Colorado Rapids keeper Tim Howard in goal.
The Galaxy will battle newcomers LAFC in the first ever El Tráfico match up this Saturday at 12:00 PT live on Fox. (If you haven’t heard, get there early)
