Revs' 18-year-old voted MLS player of the week

New England Revolution forward Diego Fagundez was voted Major League Soccer Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for week 14 of the 2013 MLS season.

The eighteen-year-old Homegrown Player orchestrated the New England Revolution’s 5-0 rout of the LA Galaxy Sunday with a goal and two assists. Fagundez is the Revolution’s leading scorer this season with five goals, and now has extended his scoring streak to four games.

Fagundez got his first assist in the 33rd minute with a beautiful one touch give-and-go with Saer Sene just outside the penalty area, which Sene neatly finished to put the Revolution up 1-0.

His second assist came in the 71st minute, when Fagundez played a quick free kick to Lee Nguyen who ran into the penalty area and slotted the ball through LA Galaxy goalkeeper Tommy Meyer’s legs.

Fagundez added a goal in the 87th minute, finishing a nice give-and-go with Kelyn Rowe inside the penalty area. The New England Revolution are back in action this Saturday when they host D.C. United at Gillette Stadium, which will be broadcasted on Univision Deportes (7:30 p.m. ET).

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media. More information and membership information can be found at http://www.soccerreporters.com/.
