2016 Team of the Week (Wk 14): Union take control of East with another win

There were only six games in Week 14, as MLS winds down for Copa America Centenario, but one team separated themselves with another win.

Not much was expected of the Philadelphia Union, but they now sit four points above any other team in the East after defeating Columbus Crew SC, 3-2, on Wednesday night.

Chris Pontius led the way with a goal and assist, while Vincent Nogueira scored a goal of his own. Keegan Rosenberry again showed why he's a Rookie of the Year candidate – the Union have conceded just 16 goals in 14 games.

Check out the rest of the team below:
