SAN JOSE, Calif. – San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Eduardo ‘Chofis’ Lopez has been named to Major League Soccer’s Team of the Week for Week 25. Chofis tallied three spectacular goals on Wednesday vs. Real Salt Lake, including a contender for MLS Goal of the Week and a rare Olimpico.

His impressive performance also marks the first hat-trick by an Earthquakes player since Chris Wondolowski scored four goals vs. Chicago on May 18, 2019.
