A major reason for the recent struggles of the Montreal Impact has been due to the lack of form of Felipe Martins. But on Saturday evening, the Brazilian midfielder showed exactly how good he can be and how much his team needs him.
Felipe scored one goal and set up another two to help lead the Impact to a 5-0 rout of the Houston Dynamo. Felipe’s goal was a Goal of the Week nominee, curling the ball into the side netting past Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall. Felipe’s performance on Saturday earned him this week’s honor of SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Felipe beat out teammate Marco Di Vaio, Kyle Beckerman, and Kelyn Rowe for this week’s honor.
