New England Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez was voted MLS player of the week for Week 14 after his 1-goal, 2-assist performance in the Revs 5-0 win over the LA Galaxy yesterday. 

The 18-year old Fagundez earned his first career multiple-point game Sunday, setting up the game’s first two goals to Saer Sene and Lee Nguyen, respectively, before finding the net himself in the 87th minute for his 5th goal of the year.  He extended his goal-scoring streak to four games, the longest since Clint Dempsey scored in five straight games in 2005.

Fagundez is the first player to be named MLS player of the week since Lee Nguyen was named player of the week for Week 10 in 2012.
