For the second week running, no New York Cosmos' players were named to the NASL team of the week. There were two of our opponents from week four named to the squad, as goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald and midfielder Ty Shipalane were both honored by the league.
Here's the full team of the week named today:
Akira Fitzgerald, Carolina RailHawks
Tiago Calvano, Minnesota United FC
Ivan Guerrero, Fort Lauderdale Strikers
Mike Randolph, Atlanta Silverbacks
Shane Hill, Tampa Bay Rowdies
Daniel Mendes, Minnesota United FC
Fafà Picault, Fort Lauderdale Strikers
Ty Shipalane, Carolina RailHawks
Daryl Fordyce, FC Edmonton
Deon McCauley, Atlanta Silverbacks
Christian Ramirez, Minnesota United FC
Hopefully things will get back to normal next week, and we'll see a few Cosmos' players named to the squad with a few less Minnesota players joining them. As long as the club manage to return to its past winning ways, that should happen.
