Ilsinho, Trusty named to MLS Team of the Week

Behind strong performances against New York Red Bulls, Philadelphia Union defender Auston Trusty and midfielder Ilsinho have been named to the MLS Team of the Week.

Trailing 2-0 at the break, Ilsinho was called upon to make an offensive impact.

In short, he did.

The Brazilian turned the match on its head in a 12-minute span, first finding Jamiro Monteiro on a cutback in the box before, less than a minute later, finishing off a strong run in Skillsinho fashion to knot the match at 2-2 and send the sell out crowd at Talen Energy Stadium into a frenzy.

After a penalty kick was saved by the visitors, Ilsinho was first to the rebound, finishing off yet another chance to bag a brace and continue to be one of the top stories of the 2019 MLS season.

With the lead on the Union's side, Trusty commanded the backline to seal the 3-2 victory against their rivals. The homegrown turned in a yet another strong performance, including a team-high eight clearances, five interceptions and a blocked Red Bulls shot.

Both players are deserving Team of the Week winners for the first place Union.
