Austin FC midfielder and Designated Player Sebastián Driussi was named to the MLS Team of the Week bench following his performance in Austin’s 4-3 loss to New York Red Bulls on Sunday night. Driussi has now earned a team-high eight (8) Team of the Week selections this season.

Driussi played a role in all three (3) of Austin FC’s goals on Sunday, scoring twice from outside the penalty area. His first was a spectacular volley in the 45th minute, and his second an incredible long-range strike from 30 yards in the 69th minute.

He then recorded an assist in the 81st minute, picking out Washington Corozo with a cross who in turn set up Ethan Finlay. Driussi leads MLS in goal contributions (20) and is tied for the league-lead in goals scored (13).
