Kenny Cooper named to MLS Team of the Week, Castrol Index Top 20

By Daniel Robertson

Kenny Cooper loves to play the Chicago Fire as a member of FC Dallas. There can be no doubting that.

Cooper scored two more goals against Chicago on Saturday night to up his career tally against the Fire to eight goals in eight matches, making him the all-time FCD leading scorer against their Brimstone Cup rivals.

For his effort, Cooper was named to the MLSSoccer.com week 33 Team of the Week.

Said MLSsoccer.com about Cooper: FW: Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas) – Unfortunate to be on the losing end after a commendable two-goal effort against Chicago to make it three goals in two games for the big striker. His resurgence may have come too late to save Dallas this season, but it should bode well for his and the team's chances in 2014.

In addition, both Cooper and Fabian Castillo were named to this week's Castrol Index Top 20
