Twice as nice! For the second week in a row, Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz were both named to the MLSSoccer.com Team of the Week for week 10 of the MLS season. Castillo has been named to three of the last four TOTW's, five this season and is currently tied for the MLS lead in assists with five in ten appearances. 

M: Fabian Castillo (FC Dallas) – Had more than his usual share of accelerations and dribbles which put the Galaxy backline on its heels and created dangerous opportunities in Dallas' 2-1 win over LA.

M: Mauro Diaz (FC Dallas) – Went 90 minutes for the first time since April 2014 and fans were thankful that he did. His superb vision created both Dallas goals.
