Carlos Vela makes second MLS Team of the Week appearance

Carlos Vela was included in the MLS Team of the Week 13 after scoring his second goal of the 2021 Major League Soccer season on Saturday night at the Banc of California stadium. His teammate Kim Moon-Hwan gave him the assist and the right-back was also included in the starting XI squad.

This is his second appearance this campaign and he gave the Los Angeles FC the victory and all three points in a 2-1 win against Real Salt Lake. The Mexican international has not scored a lot of goals this season after missing several games due to an injury, but since coming back he has provided four assists in 10 appearances.

What is next for LAFC?

The ‘Black & Gold’ had a rocky start to the 2021 Major League Soccer season, but they are bouncing back and have won their last three games. Currently, they are in fifth place on 21 points with a record of 6W-3D-4L.

They have a short week ahead of them because they have to travel to Portland to face the Timbers on 21 July and three days later they have to host the Vancouver Whitecaps at the Banc of California stadium. Then on 28 July they will have another home game against Minnesota United.
