2016 Team of the Week (Wk 23): BWP breaks record as Red Bulls get huge win

Bradley Wright-Phillips has been unstoppable since taking over the starting striker spot in the New York Red Bulls lineup before the 2014 season.

In all, he has scored 59 goals, with his latest two coming against the Montreal Impact on Saturday night as the Red Bulls beat their conference rivals 3-1 at Red Bull Arena.

His 59th regular-season goal with the Red Bulls is one more than Juan Pablo Angel had during his time in New York, as BWP now sits atop the Red Bulls all-time goalscoring list.

Sean Davis also had a fantastic game filling in for the injured Dax McCarty, scoring one goal and assisting on two others.
