thumbnail Hello,

The season is a mere two weeks old, but already Goal.com's MLS team of the week has some familiar faces.

Goalkeeper:

Kasey Keller (Seattle Sounders): The 40-year-old has yet to concede in Major League Soccer action.

Defense:

Mariano Trujillo (Chivas USA): The Mexican has fit right into the pace of MLS, providing a quick and clever release out of the backline for Chivas USA.

Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew): Wasn't at fault for Gino Padula's atrocious own-goal, and other than that kept theToronto FC attack quiet.

Tyrone Marshall (Seattle Sounders FC): Jeff Parke joined USL-1 side Vancouver Whitecaps rather than try to steal Marshall's starting spot.

Midfield:

Darren Huckerby (San Jose Earthquakes): The first half of the Houston Dynamo game belonged to this man's pace and vision.

Shalrie Joseph (New England Revolution): With all of the club's reliable attacking weapons out, Steve Nicol desperately turned to Joseph for offensive output, and he provided it with a gloriously flicked assist in the 90th minute.

Clint Mathis (Real Salt Lake): Some of his through-balls were sublime, and should have been finished much better.

Osvaldo Alonso (Seattle Sounders FC): Alsonso 1 - 0 Morales.

Arturo Alvarez (San Jose Earthquakes): A goal and an assist in three minutes, both of the highest quality, set the tone for the rest of the match.

Forward:

Fredy Montero (Seattle Sounders FC): Did you see that ball swerve? Delicious.

Macoumba Kandji (New York Red Bulls): Was playing the game at a completely different pace than the New England Revolution defense.
