Nicolás Gaitán included among MLS Team of the Week

Chicago Fire midfielder Nicolás Gaitán has been included among this week's MLS Team of the Week!

Gaitán -- in his second start for the Fire -- was picked to the TOTW bench after chipping in a pair of eye-popping assists in Saturday's 4-1 defeat of the Colorado Rapids at SeatGeek Stadium. In the 34th minute, Gaitán's no-look left-footed cross found the head of Nemanja Nikolić for the opening goal of the match.

Then, in the 61st minute, an acrobatic touch inside the 18-yard box beat goalkeeper Tim Howard and fell to the foot of Djordje Mihailović for an easy finish. Check out the rest of this week's Team of the Week below.
