Nashville SC midfielder Hany Mukhtar has been named to the MLS Team of the Week following a two-goal performance against Atlanta United.
Nashville were down 2-0 in the 80th minute when Mukhtar took over, scoring twice in three minutes to pull the Boys In Gold level and maintain their unbeaten record in 2021. He’s Nashville’s leading scorer in 2021 with three goals, and leads them all-time in MLS with eight.
Nashville currently sit in seventh place in MLS’s Eastern Conference, with a 2-5-0 record heading into the international break. One of just two sides in the league yet to lose a game, they’ll resume play on June 18 against New York Red Bulls.
