For the third time in 2022, Philadelphia Union forward Julian Carranza has been named to Major League Soccer’s Team of the Week.

The Argentinian latest placement on the league's weekly honor came after a memorable night down at D.C. United as Carranza scored a second-half hat trick. The goals not only made him a double-digit scorer but the hat trick was his second of 2022 with the other coming against D.C. United in July. With the feat, Carranza not only became the first Union player to score multiple hat tricks but also joins Cobi Jones as the only players in Major League Soccer History to score two hat tricks against the same team in a single season.

Philadelphia Union are back at home on Saturday night in front of the Union faithful as they host the Colorado Rapids on August 27th. The match is presented by Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer with kick off from Subaru Park is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The match will also see the Union celebrating Hispanic Heritage with the club having food vendors from Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela available throughout the entire match! Special mariachi performances will also happen on plaza and in-stadium before the match so be sure to get in early!
