Long-distance strike earns Santos spot on MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week

Pedro Santos made a special night all the more so thanks to a second-half rip that faded across the goal face and into the upper 90, and for his efforts, the Portuguese international earned a starting spot on MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week.

The goal marked Santos' third in the last three games, while the Team of the Week nod marks his third since the start of June. The goal marked Crew SC's second of the match as the Club earned a 2-2 draw against FC Cincinnati in the inaugural #HellisReal MLS on Saturday, Aug. 10 at MAPFRE Stadium.
