Atlanta United’s Barco named MLS Player of Week

Atlanta United’s Ezequiel Barco was voted the MLS Player of the Week on Monday.

Barco, 20, scored two goals for the Five Stripes in Saturday’s 2-0 win at New England. It was the first multi-goal game of his career in the league.

Barco’s first goal came in the 29th minute. 

The second, a wonderful curling strike, came in the 49th minute.

Barco is the third Atlanta United player in MLS history to win a Player of the Week Award, joining Miguel Almiron and Josef Martinez.
