MLS Audi Team Of The Week

MLS Team Of The Week: Zimmerman, Rossi, Atuesta In The Squad

The MLS Team of the Week for Week 4 definitely has a Black & Gold hue to it.

Walker Zimmerman, Diego Rossi, and Eduard Atuesta were all named in the squad. 

Zimmerman gets a nod in the starting 11 for this week's team. After his last-minute heroics against RSL on Saturday, the center back was a lock for this team, but don't let it go unnoticed how well he performed on both sides of the ball. Zimmerman's leadership at the back was crucial to the victory for top of the table LAFC and he was nearly perfect in his duels that night - he's also up for the AT&T Goal of the Week.

Joining Zimmerman from LAFC, Rossi and Atuesta were named as substitutes in the squad.

Rossi, of course, leveled the score at 1-1 in the 40th minute with an opportunistic strike. The goal was his second of the season and the second time this year his strike brought LAFC level in a match. While Atuesta was his usual do-it-all self in midfield for LAFC. The Colombian central midfielder was on the ball driving LAFC forward in a match they had nearly 70 percent of the possession.
