Team of the Week presented by Audi: David Villa shines in Week 28

It was a relatively quiet week in MLS, with just seven teams in action in Week 28, but that didn't mean there weren't performances worthy of the Team of the Week presented by Audi.

The Portland Timbers and Sporting Kansas City, both victorious on Saturday, lead the way, with five Timbers players and three SKC men in the 18 for the week.
