Ghana winger David Accam has been named as the Major League Soccer Player of the Week.
Accam who features for Chicago Fire netted a hattrick on Saturday as Fire humiliated Orlando City by four goals to nothing.
The Ghanaian has now banged in ten goals this season and provided six assists for his club this campaign. He is tied with teammate Nemanja Nikolic and New York City FC’s David Villa in that category.
Accam’s first goal was an impressive backheel in the third minute. He is also in the running for Goal of the Week for that effort.
He had his second goal less than 10 minutes into the match, added an assist to Nikolic early in the second half and finished the hat trick with a penalty kick.
Nikolic previously won Player of the Week in April and Player of the Month in May.
Accam is currently with the Ghanaian national team for friendly games against Mexico and USA and will not be available for his side’s game on Wednesday with FC Cincinnati and the Saturday league game against Vancouver WhiteCaps.
