Sounders midfielder Steve Zakuani has been voted MLS player of the week after scoring both goals in Seattle's 2-1 win over Colorado last night.
That's the word from the Soccer Reporters of North America, which votes on the award. The official league release will be coming soon.
Meanwhile, here's some of what Zakuani had to say last night after the game:
It's just good to get a win. To be honest, I think Colorado controlled the game. We did a lot of running out there, but I think we fought well as a team in there. It was disappointing when we scored the first one they came straight back, but we did a second goal, didn't make the same mistake twice. It was a very good team win tonight.
This first one I initially took a bad touch, I think it was Sturgis or Alonso who played it to me, but Fredy was coming up and it was a bit of ping-pong in the box and the ball fell to me. It was about getting a quick release and I did, maybe got a bit lucky, it came off his back, but I take it as it comes. The second one, great combination with Fredy and Sanna out wide, I just made a run and Sanna picked me out and it's an easy tap-in. I was happy to get both goals.
