Yordany Alvarez was named the winner of the AT&T Goal of the Week award on Friday for his sublime strike in Real Salt Lake's 1-0 triumph over Toronto FC, ending a three-week reign by the Portland Timbers.

Montreal Impact defender Hassoun Camara finished in second with nearly 26 percent of all votes.
