Houston Dynamo forward Alberth Elis returned to the starting lineup and got back to making an impact on Saturday, earning himself a spot on the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week for Week 23.


Elis scored the opening goal against the San Jose Earthquakes, heading in his seventh of the season off a Boniek García corner kick. Then, he nutmegged his defender and set up Vicente Sánchez late in the game to seal yet another home win for the Dynamo.


Sánchez landed a spot on the bench for his performance as a substitute with the goal and an assist to Mauro Manotas in the closing seconds of the match. Check out the full Team of the Week below:
