Los Angeles Football Club Forward Bradley Wright-Phillips Voted MLS Player of the Week
NEW YORK (Thursday, September 24, 2020) – Los Angeles Football Club forward Bradley Wright-Phillips was voted the Major League Soccer Player of the Week for the 13th week of the 2020 MLS season. This was Wright-Phillips’ 12th MLS Player of the Week honor, third-most in league history, and the first since Week 29 of the 2018 season.
Wright-Phillips powered LAFC to a dominant 6-0 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Wednesday at Banc of California Stadium behind two goals, the 22nd regular season multi-goal performance of his MLS career. Wright-Phillips now has seven goals this season, tied for fourth-most in the standings for the 2020 MLS Golden Boot presented by Audi. In his career, Wright-Phillips has scored 115 regular season goals, sixth-most in MLS history. LAFC is tied for sixth in the Western Conference standings with 18 points (5-5-3 overall record).  
With LAFC already holding an early advantage, Wright-Phillips extended the club’s lead to 2-0 in the 5th minute with an acrobatic spinning right-footed shot from the center of the box to the bottom left corner (watch goal).
Wright-Phillips would then score his second goal of the game in the 11th minute to extend LAFC’s lead to 3-0 when he finished a deflected Diego Rossi shot with a right-footed scissor kick from the box into the center of the goal (watch goal).
LAFC continues action this week on Sunday when hosting the San Jose Earthquakes (10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN+).
The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season through both media and fan voting in a process conducted by MLS Communications. A panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) comprises 75 percent of the vote, while a Twitter fan vote represents the remaining 25 percent of voting. NASR consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
