October 12, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Los Angeles FC News Release

The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) forward Danny Musovski was voted the Major League Soccer Player of the Week for the 17th week of the 2020 MLS season. Musovski is the third LAFC forward to win Player of the Week this season (Diego Rossi - Week nine, Bradley Wright-Phillips - Week 13).

Musovski helped LAFC to a 3-1 victory over Seattle Sounders FC at Banc of California Stadium on Sunday behind two goals and an assist. Musovski has now tallied four goals and one assist this season. LAFC is fourth in the Western Conference standings with 24 points (7-6-3 overall record).

LAFC took a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute when Musovski finished an Eduard Atuesta free kick with a running header from the six-yard box into the back right corner. Musovski then registered his first career MLS regular season assist to give LAFC a 2-0 lead on Francisco Ginella's 65th minute score.

The 24-year-old Musovski found the net again in the 84th minute, his first career MLS multi-goal performance, to give LAFC a 3-1 advantage. Following a Seattle save on Latif Blessing's shot, Musovski got on the rebound and finished with a left footed shot to the bottom left corner.

LAFC continues action this week with a pair of road games against the Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Wednesday, October 14 and the Portland Timbers on Sunday, October 18. Both matches will take place at Providence Park in Portland at 7:00 p.m. PT on YouTube TV, Estrella TV, ESPN LA 710 AM, KFWB 980 AM.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season through both media and fan voting in a process conducted by MLS Communications. A panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) comprises 75 percent of the vote, while a Twitter fan vote represents the remaining 25 percent of voting. NASR consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
