Football Player Lindpere Picked for Weekly Dream Team


From Estonian Public Broadcasting

The soccer website has chosen Estonian Joel Lindpere as one of the US major league’s best players of the week.

The New York Red Bulls midfielder was praised for two beautiful setups in a 2:2 game against FC Dallas.

“Lost amongst the arrivals of Rafa Marquez and Thierry Henry and the breakout season of Tim Ream has been an equally exciting first MLS season for Joel Lindpere,” wrote the website. “He assisted New York’s first goal with a perfectly placed cross to Mehdi Ballouchy before his probing cross in the second half forced Jair Benitez to put the ball in his own net with Juan Pablo Angel lurking.”
