NASL Announces Team Of Week 4

As the NASL does every week, yesterday they announced the players who earned top performer honors for their play in week 4. Given their performance in week 4, The New York Cosmos were without a player named to this team. For his efforts against the Cosmos, Railhawks goalie, Akira Fitzgerald was named goalie of the week. One more item to note, there were three Minnesota FC players on the week four team. Monday’s game will indeed be a challenge for the boys in green!
