Nashville SC goalkeeper Joe Willis was named to the MLS Team of the Week following his heroics in a 0-0 draw against Inter Miami CF. The netminder made two early saves to deny Miami an opener, preserving a point and a clean sheet for Nashville.

It’s the third time Willis has been named to the Team of the Week in a Nashville shirt, getting the nod twice in 2020. He’s the second Nashville player to be recognized this season; Randall Leal earned the nod in Week 1, after a stellar performance against FC Cincinnati.
