Portland Timbers' Darlington Nagbe, Philadelphia Union win 2015 MLS Fair Play Awards

Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe won his second career MLS Individual Fair Play award on Friday, while the Philadelphia received the MLS Team Fair Play award, for the second time in their history.

Both awards are selected by Major League Soccer officials, based on a combination of objective criteria, such as fouls committed and cards received, and subjective evaluation of sportsmanlike behavior.

Nagbe, who also won the award in 2013, is one of four players in MLS history to win the Individual Fair Play award multiple times, joining Steve Ralston, Michael Parkhurst and Sebastien Le Toux. Nagbe was whistled for 11 fouls all season, picking up no yellow or red cards for the second season running.

Other finalists for the 2015 award were Nagbe's Portland teammate Nat Borchers and San Jose Earthquakes defender Marvell Wynne.

Philadelphia won the Team Fair Play award, their second such selection in two years. They conceded the fewest fouls in the league, with 374. 

The Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy were finalists for the 2015 Team Fair Play award.
