After helping secure Philadelphia Union's fifth-consecutive MLS Cup Playoff berth, forward Mikael Uhre has been named to the MLSSoccer.com Team of the Week.
Uhre set up the Boys in Blue's opening goal on Wednesday night against Atlanta United FC, picking out Julian Carranza in the 18th minute. After the visitors equalized and looked to have momentum going into halftime, Uhre unleashed a blast in first-half stoppage time to put the Union ahead going into the break. The goal was an important one for the Danish forward, giving him 10 goals in just under 1,300 minutes.
The win saw the Union become the first team in the Eastern Conference to secure a spot in the postseason and set a new franchise record for goals scored along with a MLS record for most goals scored in a three-game span.
Philly won't have much time to celebrate their playoff spot as they hit the road to battle rivals New York Red Bulls on Saturday night. Kick off from New Jersey is set for 7 p.m. ET with coverage on PHL17 and PhiladelphiaUnion.com.
