Allan Cruz Named to MLS Team of the Week
CINCINNATI - FC Cincinnati midfielder Allan Cruz has earned a place on Major League Soccer's Team of the Week presented by Audi for Week 28. This is Cruz's first Team of the Week inclusion this season.
Cruz was named to the seven-player bench after he recorded the game-winning goal in FC Cincinnati's 1-0 win at Montreal on Sept. 14. The midfielder became the first player in MLS this season to record multiple first-minute goals after he struck Saturday just 28 second into the game. Of Cruz's six goals this season, four have come within the first 10 minutes of a match, including a 45-second goal against the Chicago Fire on July 13. The Orange and Blue are 4-2-0 in matches when Cruz scores a goal this season.
FC Cincinnati will host three straight games at Nippert Stadium. The team next plays on Wednesday, Sept. 18, when the Orange and Blue host defending MLS Cup champions Atlanta United FC at 7:30 p.m. during "Noche Latina." First kick is set for 7:30 p.m. and the game will be televised live on WSTR 64, streamed on FloFC (in-region) and ESPN+ (out-of-region), carried on the radio on WDJO with an audio stream on TuneIn (WDJO) and fccincinnati.com.
Individual-game tickets and group options are on sale for all remaining FC Cincinnati games at fccincinnati.com/tickets or by calling 513-977-5425 (KICK). The team will then host the Chicago Fire (Saturday, Sept. 21) and Orlando City SC (Sunday, Sept. 29) to close its home slate.
