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)
