Johan Kappelhof Named To MLS Week 15 Team Of The Week

The Fire defender gets a nod for his work against New England

MLS: Chicago Fire at Philadelphia Union Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Fire centerback Johan Kappelhof has been named in the MLS Team Of The Week for Matchday 15.

The nod comes in recognition of Kappelhof’s solid and consistent defensive work, which proved crucial for the Fire’s ability to get a result against the New England Revolution on Saturday. While a mistake by goalkeeper Richard Sanchez cost the Men In Red a win at home, Kappelhof helped keep things locked down enough to hold on for a point.

Here’s the full TOTW for Week 15:

GK: Brad Guzan (ATL)

DEF: Harrison Afful (CLB), Johan Kappelhof (CHI), Ike Opara (SKC)

MID: Jonathan Osorio (TOR), Maxi Moralez (NYC), Nicolas Lodeiro (SEA), Tomas Martinez (HOU), Alphonso Davies (VAN)

FWD: Adama Diomande (LAFC), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (LAG)

Bench: Tim Melia (SKC), Jorgen Skjelvik (LA), Larrys Mabiala (POR), Alexander Callens (NYC), Felipe (VAN), Mauro Diaz (DAL), Chris Wondolowski (SJ)
