It couldn’t have been scripted any better.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC striker Fredy Montero has been named to the MLS Team of the Week after scoring both of Vancouver’s goals in a 2-1 win over Cascadia rival Seattle Sounders FC – Montero’s former club – on Friday night at BC Place. The Colombian now has three goals and one assist in three starts, and six appearances, so far this MLS regular season.
