San Jose Earthquakes midfielders Shea Salinas and Jackson Yueill have been named to Major League Soccer’s Team of the Week for Week 9. Salinas and Yueill led the Quakes to consecutive points away from home in last week's matchups against a red-hot Seattle Sounders FC and FC Dallas.
On Wednesday’s match against Seattle, Salinas scored two goals to give the Quakes a point following their 2-2 draw at Century Link Field. Yueill proved to be a nuisance for the Sounders after creating numerous chances throughout the match.
With the 0-0 draw against FC Dallas, the Quakes have now earned at least one point in four of their last five matches. The last time the team accomplished this feat during a single season was from April 29 – May 20, 2017 (3-1-1).
