Rossi Could Become Youngest Golden Boot Winner Since Twellman, Ruiz: This Week in MLS

Rossi Could Become Youngest Golden Boot Winner Since Twellman, Ruiz
At age 22 this season, Los Angeles Football Club forward Diego Rossi has scored 12 goals over his 15 games (0.80 GPG), and could be well on his way to becoming the youngest player to win the MLS Golden Boot presented by Audi since 2002.
 
Back then, the LA Galaxy’s Carlos Ruiz netted 24 goals in 26 games (.96 GPG) to win the Golden Boot – reaching his 23rd birthday in only the final week of the regular season. The MLS Scoring Champion that year was none other than 22-year-old and now ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman, whose league-leading combined goals and assists included 23 goals in 28 games (0.82 GAA) during a breakout first season with the New England Revolution.
 
Now fast forward 18 years, and Rossi has a very similar goals-per-game average as Twellman’s 2002 tally. Rossi’s  goal-scoring pursuits could even bear the fruits of a Golden Boot double after he captured the MLS is Back Tournament leading scorer title and the Young Player of the Tournament award with seven goals and three assists during the return to play in Orlando this summer.
 
Rossi has earned a call-up to the Uruguay National Team for matches against Chile on Oct. 8 and Ecuador on Oct. 13.
 
However, with at least six games remaining to play for LAFC and a three-goal edge above the next closest contenders, Rossi could be joining the league’s most legendary finishers if he can maintain this consistent pace of scoring. Better yet, he could help keep LAFC above the playoff line.
 
Nashville SC Look to Extend Home Unbeaten Streak in front of Home Fans
With just eight weeks to go – all eyes turn to the playoff line. Only five first-year expansion teams have every qualified for the postseason, but 2020 newcomer Nashville SC, riding a five-game unbeaten streak at home, are sitting above the playoff line, with a game in hand, headed into two matches this week. After managing his 300th match last week, head coach Gary Smith prepares the Boys in Gold for their seventh home game of the season tonight, and the team’s first in front of fans since the team debuted in front of more than 59,000 fans on Feb. 29.
