Two-goal performance against Orlando City earns Przemysław Frankowski MLS Team of the Week honors

After netting two memorable goals in the Chicago Fire's 5-2 rout of Orlando City SC on Sunday, midfielder Przemysław Frankowski has been named to the Week 31 MLS Team of the Week!

Frankowski picked up his fourth and fifth goals of the season in a pair of unique second half finishes. In the 66th minute, Frankowski found himself on top of the ball inside the Orlando city 18-yard box with his back to goal on a feed from Aleksandar Katai and a dummy from Dax McCarty. Rather than turning, the Polish international placed a firm backheel into the bottom corner of the net past goalkeeper Brian Rowe to extend the Fire's lead to 4-1.

The 24-year-old capped the afternoon with the Fire's fifth goal in the 87th minute. After creating space with a dummy on a Bastian Schweinsteiger pass, Frankowski pulled down a Nemanja Nikolić chip and lofted a ball over Rower from a tight angle. Frankowski was first to the ball as it fell, and headed home his second goal of the day.

The Team of the Week honors were Frankowski's third over the last five matchweeks, capping a sterling debut season in Chicago. Check out the rest of this week's squad below.
