Weekly Accolades rolling in for red-hot FC Dallas

By Daniel Robertson

FC Dallas is in the midst of their second five-game MLS unbeaten streak of the season that's seen Oscar Pareja's men rise back up into a tie for second place in the Western Conference and the accolades are rolling in for FCD this week.

After his second MLS goal and first game-winner, Colombian winger Andres Escobar earned the top spot on the MLS Castrol Index Weekly Top 20. Goalkeeper Raul Fernandez, who had his first MLS shutout of the season, came in at 6th on the top 20 while the other goalscorer, Tesho Akindele, earned the #20 spot on the list.

The MLSsoccer.com Power Rankings were very kind to FC Dallas who rose five spots from #10 to #5 on the list.

In addition, Escobar earned his first nod to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week. We'd like to think a couple other guys would be eligible for the list as well, but it's great to also see Moises Hernandez earn a spot on the ToTW bench.

They had this to say about Escobar's weekend: "Nearly unplayable, racing up and down the wings and wreaking havoc as Dallas was able to oust the Revolution 2-0."
