Andre Blake Earns Another Spot on the MLS Team of the Week
Union goalie Andre Blake has earned another spot in the MLS Team of the Week after another great performance against D.C United. With the shutout last night, Blake is now tied for most clean sheets so far this year recording four in seven matches. This doesn’t include the three shutouts in CONCACAF Champions League play. Blake’s dominance in the MLS isn’t a new sight. Last year, he was awarded the 2020 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year for the second time in his career. If this high level of play continues for Blake, there is a very good chance he wins it for a third time this season.
The Philadelphia Union defeated D.C. United last night 1-0 last night. Along with Andre Blake, center back Jakob Glenses had his best performance of the season so far. If he can play with this consistency, it would a huge boost to the Union’s defense following the departure of Mark McKenzie this past offseason.
