FC Dallas winger Paul Arriola was named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for Week 10 following the 2-0 shutout win against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday, May 7 at Toyota Stadium. This is Arriola’s first Team of the Week appearance this season and fifth overall since joining MLS. He previously earned two Team of the Week honors and made two Team of the Week bench appearances for D.C. United.
Arriola, 27, scored his second FC Dallas goal in the 88th minute after ripping a left-footed shot from the six-yard box past Seattle’s Stefan Cleveland. Arriola also played a role in teammate Jesús Ferreira’s game-winning goal in the 65th minute after a pass from Ema Twumasi was dummied by Arriola before Ferreira curled it past Seattle’s goal.
