For the first time since 2011, a Philadelphia Union player has won Major League Soccer’s Player of the Week award. Jack McInerney was voted as the league’s top performer by the North American Soccer Reporters, an organization of journalists acros the continent.
McInerney received 17 first-place votes and five second-place votes out of 27 ballots cast.
The 20-year-old scored two goals in the Union’s 3-2 win at D.C. United on Sunday. He leads MLS with six goals this season, and is the youngest player to ever lead the league in goals at any point in MLS' 18-year history.
