It seems like 2014 is the year of El Cubo, and readers of The Goat Parade by and large agree, as they selected Erick Torres Chivas USA Player of the Month for July, his second consecutive POTM award and fifth in his time with the Amerigoats.
Torres scored four goals in five games during July, as part of a six-game scoring streak that powered CUSA to their best run of the season. In July in particular, he had the game winner in three straight games, helping Chivas to a 3-2-0 mark during the month, and kept pace in the MLS Golden Boot Race, as he remains in second place behind only New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips. He also won MLS Player of the Week, MLS Goal of the Week, was named to the 2014 MLS All-Star team and has been nominated for MLS Player of the Month to boot.
Thanks to everybody who voted, and be on the lookout for the August Player of the Month poll when the time comes!
