With Los Angeles Football Club back in the win column, Carlos Vela is once again back in the mix for MLS recognition.

After scoring the winning goal in LAFC’s 2-0 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Friday, Vela was named to the MLS Team of the Week for Week 7. It’s his third such selection to the Team of the Week XI so far this season, the most on the team.

In addition, Vela’s game-winning goal was nominated for MLS Goal of the Week. That contest is a public vote, and you can show your support by voting here before the poll closes on Wednesday night. It’s the second time this season Vela has been nominated for Goal of the Week.

Congratulations to Carlos on the honors. As we keep saying, as long as the fantastic play continues, the honors should just keep on rolling in.
