LA Galaxy right back Dan Gargan has been one of the standouts of the 2014 MLS regular season and on Monday, he was named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for his role in LA's 1-1 draw with the Portland Timbers on Sunday.
Throughout the afternoon, Gargan was able to silence speedy left winger Steve Zakuani, but his finest moment came in stoppage time as Gargan's throw-in led to Robbie Keane's header that appeared to seal three points for LA before Diego Valeri's equalizer moments later.
Following the match, Gargan admitted that he was pleased with his performance.
"[Zakuani] is quick and I think that I may have underestimated his speed a little bit in the first half, but I didn't think he could keep up with me in the second half," said Gargan. "I thought it was tough on the turf and I could have had better quality in the final third."
