MLS Regular Season
Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz had epic matches in Houston on Friday each scoring a goal and two assists. For their efforts, they were both named to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week for week 9 of the MLS season. Castillo has been named to two of the last three TOTW's, four this season and currently sits tied for the MLS lead with five assists in nine appearances.
Here's what they had to say about the performances:
M: Mauro Díaz (FC Dallas) – If his goal and two assists against Houston are any indication, it was worth the wait to get Diaz back and in good form for FC Dallas, as he had one of his best games in MLS against the Dynamo.
M: Fabián Castillo (FC Dallas) – Castillo was the yang to Diaz’s yin for FCD, and part of his genius is that he’s able to pull off both spectacular skill and tangible production, as he notched a goal and two assists as well.
Additionally, head coach Oscar Pareja was named as the coach of the week:
Coach: Oscar Pareja (FC Dallas) – Had his team flying against their rivals as both Diaz and Castillo had their skills on full display against the Dynamo.
Diaz and Castillo, as well as captain Matt Hedges, earned nods from Goal.com for their team of the week as well.
