Gringo of the Week: Brek Shea

In our August podcast, Ben Koch tabbed Brek Shea as a player to watch, and though Shea has never been capped by the Senior Men’s Team, it’s only a matter of time before the youngster gets a call. On Saturday, he scored the lone goal in Dallas’ 1-0 victory over Chivas. In the video at the bottom of the post, you can see Shea’s goal at the twenty second mark.

Honorable Mention:

Brad Guzan – Aston Villa’s No. 2 goalkeeper helped his team to a 1-1 draw in a Europa League match last Thursday. Guzan apparently had to make saves while dodging objects thrown from the crowd.

Sacha Kljestan – Kljestan opened the scoring for Anderlecht this weekend in their 3-0 victory. Since signing with the Belgian club this summer, Sacha has now found the net twice in only five games.

It's very calm over here, why not leave a comment?
