Orji Okonkwo misses out on MLS Team of the Week spot

Nigeria U23 international Orji Okonkwo missed out in a spot in Major League Soccer's Team of the Week in the latest round of matches played. 

Okonkwo who currently plays for Montreal Impact was named among the seven substitutes picked by the official website of MLS (via All Nigeria Soccer). 

The 21-year-old who is on loan from Bologna scored a brace in Montreal's 4-0 victory over Philadelphia Union on Sunday, July 28 - surprising to say the least when he missed the chances to be part of the Team of the Week.

Okonkwo made the Team of the Week bench along with Vito Mannone, Nick Lima, Everton Luiz, Carles Gil, Diego Valeri, and Nick DeLeon.

Two of his teammates in the shape of Lassi Lappalainen and  Zachary Brault-Guillard were chosen in the ceremonial MLS eleven containing the best players in the division.
