Career night earns Santos a spot on MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week

A two-goal performance, including an 84th-minute game-winner, earned Pedro Santos a spot on MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for the second time this season.

Santos scored the initial go-ahead goal in the opening seconds of the second half on a quick transition, starting with an outlet from Hector Jimenez before Luis Argudo laid it off for a powerful finish from Santos.

Following a PK conversion from New York's Daniel Royer to level the match at 2-2, the Portuguese midfielder buried the game-winner on a rebound opportunity just outside the six-yard box.

The brace marked Santos' first since joining the Crew in August of 2017. This year, Santos has totaled an MLS-career-high seven goals to go with three assists.
