Polster MTL

A pair of the Chicago Fire's top performers from Saturday night's 1-0 victory away at the Montreal Impact were included in this week's MLS Team of the Week for their respective efforts.


Defender Matt Polster made his return to the lineup after suffering a left knee injury that has sidelined him for the team's prior three matches. Polster earned his TOTW nod after assisting on Bastian Schweinsteiger's game-winning goal in the second half, and helping limit the influence of Montreal playmaker Ignacio Piatti along the Fire's right touchline.


Midfielder Juninho makes an appearance on the TOTW bench after putting in a 90 minute shift and helping the team keep it's clean sheet with 12 defensive actions and a steadying presence in distribution. See below for the full Week 26 squad.
