Led by a trio of outstanding performances by forwards, the SBI MLS Best XI for Week 2 is stacked with plenty of attacking talent.

Player of the Week David Estrada leads the way, and is joined on the squad by teammate and partner in goal-creating crime Alvaro Fernandez. River-dancing striker Kei Kamara garnered recognition as well, and so did LA Galaxy Designated Players Robbie Keane and David Beckham.

We even saw a player make the Best XI in his first MLS match as Hanyer Mosquera put in a commanding performance in helping the Portland Timbers score a valuable road point against FC Dallas.

Here is SBI's MLS Best XI for Week Two:


—-David Estrada—–Kei Kamara——Robbie Keane—–

—Alvaro Fernandez—————–Jaime Castrillon——

————-Ned Grabavoy—-David Beckham—————

–Jay DeMerit——Hanyer Mosquera——-Jamison Olave

————————-Tally Hall—————————— 

HONORABLE MENTION– Paolo Tornaghi, Todd Dunivant, Bobby Boswell, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic, Osvaldo Alonso, Bobby Convey, Gabriel Gomez, Davy Arnaud, Landon Donovan, Fabian Espindola

    Way to give Fernandez the nod. No one seems to really be giving him credit for the game, but he was amazing on the ball. If not for the hat trick, Fernandez would have gotten more attention.

    I like that this Best XI is about more than just scoring a goal. I didn’t get to see RSL this week, what was it about Grabavoy’s performance that stood out?

  3. Dainja says:

    Glad this only includes “MLS” performances, cuz Keane was partially responsible for the Galaxy’s loss against Toronto FC last week in CONCACAF Champions League. STILL mad at a couple of his blown chances!

  4. Justin says:

    No one plays a 3 man back. I wish you’d choose 4 defenders

  5. Jason says:

    How about some love for Roger Espinoza. No one works harder box to box than he does.

  6. Philadelphia does apparently. They just won’t admit it. Obviously this means he’s picking Piotr Nowak as coach of the week

  7. PanchoMiguelMoralesdeConejo says:

    I used to like Grabavoy’s game…now I think he’s become the ‘thug’ in midfield for RSL.

    Give me Alonso any day in that position.

  8. Ian says:

    Defending… it’s a thankless job!

  9. nicotine says:

    really…. grabs a thug??? I think you must be thinking a different grabavoy.

  10. nicotine says:

    will johnson for sure does. obviously not playing due to injury eliminates him from the conversation though.

  11. Shaggy says:

    Fabian Espindola. That dude plays hard all game long. Did you see how he ran down Thiery Henry and blocked his shot. He’s a madman.

  12. LA Dave says:

    Yes, embarrassing performance vs TFC, but time to get over it

  13. RB says:

    Funny to compare: looks like only 4 of these 11 made the MLS Team of the Week, and some that made that one didn’t even make the HM category here.

    They also add a coach (they named Pareja this time). How’s about adding that here?
