NYCFC’s Wallace, Ring On MLS TOTW


Two members of New York City FC are among the Starting XI for Major League Soccer’s Week 10 Team of the Week.

Rodney Wallace, who had a goal and two assists, and Alex Ring are the New York City representatives following the team’s 3-1 win over Atlanta United.

Also on the team is San Jose Earthquakes defender Florian Jungwirth, who is honored for the second consecutive week, and this time is joined by his teammate Chris Wondolowski, who bagged two goals in the Quakes’ 3-0 defeat of Portland.

CJ Sapong joins Wondo up top thanks to his hat trick in Philadelphia Union’s 3-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, the Union’s first victory of the year, an occasion also made possible by the goalkeeping exploits of Andre Blake.

Justin Morrow of Toronto FC and Matt Hedges of FC Dallas round out the starting back line, with Minnesota United’s Miguel Ibarra, Federico Higuain of the Columbus Crew and Houston Dynamo’s Alex manning the midfield.

The bench includes a third member of NYCFC, David Villa along with Bobby Shuttleworth, MIN; Laurent Ciman, MTL; Nicolai Naess, CLB; David Accam, CHI; Mauro Manotas, HOU; and Sebastian Giovinco, TOR.
