MLS 2017 scores, results: Atlanta’s new star, undefeated Timbers, and best of Week 3
Meet the newest star striker in MLS
You probably hadn’t heard of Atlanta’s young Venezuelan striker, Josef Martinez, before the season. But it is time to know this 23-year-old’s name. The short, pacey striker has been tearing it up this campaign, scoring five goals in the team’s first three matches.
After going scoreless in the opener, he had a hat-trick against Minnesota and then two more in the 4-0 win over Chicago. This kid understands the game well, knows when to make his runs and has been lethal in front of goal.
