Almirón, Martino named to MLS Team of the Week

If three home points against Columbus wasn't enough this weekend, two members of the red, black, and gold have been singled out for special recognition by Major League Soccer.

Another week, another Team of the Week nomination for Atlanta's magic number 10. Miguel Almirón scored his team-best eighth goal of the season, and pulled the strings all game in a Man-of-the-Match performance from midfield. But that's not all. Head Coach Tata Martino was selected as the manager for this week's Team of the Week for setting up the game plan that was too much for the Crew defense.

Saturday's decisive l win over their Eastern Conference rival pushes Atlanta even closer to a playoff spot, with games still in hand against their competition. You can catch all the goals from the game right here.
