With 2 goals in his debut, Sporting Kansas City's designated player Omar Bravo was voted the MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters. Bravo led Kansas City to a 3-2 victory over Chivas USA.
The 31-year-old Mexican international led all players with six shots (three of them on goal) and is the 15th player in the team's 16-year history to win player of the week honors. He's the first since Josh Wolff won it three times in 2009 and equals the number of POTW honors of his predecessor DP, Claudio Lopez.
He faced stiff competition after the opening week: D.C. United's Charlie Davies scored two goals in his first game in MLS, Vancouver's DP Eric Hassli also had two goals, Los Angeles midfielder Junihno netted game winners in both of LA's games and New York youngster Juan Agudelo opened his account in the league.
Congratulations to Bravo for earning these honors.
