Nashville SC’s Dave Romney and Dax McCarty named to MLS Team of the Week

Nashville SC have a pair of players in the MLS Team of the Week after their 2-0 win against Real Salt Lake on Sunday. Dave Romney was named to the starting lineup after scoring the winning goal, while McCarty makes the bench after a stellar performance in the heart of midfield.

Romney has once again played every minute of the season for Nashville. His goal was his second of the year, and he’s contributed to three clean sheets.

Back in the lineup after his red card suspension and the birth of his second child, McCarty has put in two consistent performances at GEODIS Park. Against Salt Lake, he completed a solid 80% of his passes, two key passes, and earned five free kicks for Nashville.
