Super teen Alphonso Davies has been named Major League Soccer’s player of the week after a one-goal and three-assist effort in the Vancouver Whitecaps’ 5-2 victory over Orlando City SC at B.C. Place on Saturday.

The 17-year-old Edmonton product is enjoying a breakout year in his third MLS season, with two goals and seven assists (third best in the MLS) in 16 matches.

He is the second Whitecaps FC player in three weeks to receive the league’s player of the week honour, following Cristian Techera in Week 13.

Following the FIFA Word Cup break, the Whitecaps will ride a six-match undefeated streak into a June 23rd road match against the Philadelphia Union at Talen Energy Stadium on June 23.

The club will return home for a Canada Day, July 1, match against the Colorado Rapids at B.C. Place Stadium.
