Mauro Diaz, Walker Zimmerman Named to MLS Team of the Week for Week 26

When you close out a season sweep of the team that knocked you out last year's playoffs in convincing fashion, people take notice. 

FC Dallas midfielder Mauro Diaz and defender Walker Zimmerman were named to MLS Team of the Week today for Week 26.

Diaz scored his 5th goal of the season on a PK in the 14th minute, his career-high 11th assist of the season and created a game-high 4 chances in the match. 

Zimmerman scored his career-high 3rd goal of the season, connecting on the end of a perfectly-placed Diaz set piece and had a team-best 8 clearances in the match. 

Midfielder Victor Ulloa made the Team of the Week bench after his 2nd goal of the season, which went on to be the game-winner.
