Room earns first career Team of the Week nod

Add another first for goalkeeper Eloy Room, who earned a spot on's Team of the Week following the Crew's 1-1 draw at San Jose on Saturday, Aug. 3.

The Curacao international totaled two clearances and four saves, including a point-preserving denial in second-half stoppage time on MLS' all-time leading goal-scorer in Chris Wondolowski.

Room skied over a crowded six-yard-box on the ensuing corner kick to parry away a dangerous opportunity for San Jose, who saw their four-match win streak end on Saturday while Columbus extended its unbeaten run to four heading into Saturday's home match against FC Cincinnati. This week's nod marks the third consecutive week a Columbus player has earned Team of the Week honors.
