RENTON, Wash. – Seattle Sounders FC forward Eddie Johnson has been named to the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 13 Ultimate Team of the Week for his performance versus FC Dallas on May 18. The EA SPORTS™ FIFA 13 Ultimate Team of the Week is a group of players throughout the world selected each week for their high level of play.
The World Cup veteran, who will soon join the U.S. Men's National Team for a pair of friendlies and three World Cup qualifiers, scored the opener with a quality half-volley in the 16th minute before burying the winner that killed off a resilient FC Dallas side in the 62nd. Johnson's two-goal effort was the ninth multi-goal game of his MLS career, and first since September 8, 2012. He leads the team with four league goals and five goals across all competitions, and is now 24th on the all-time scoring list with 59 career MLS goals.
Johnson joins the FIFA 13 Ultimate Team of the Week, including Philippe Mexès (AC Milan), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), Lucho Gonzalez (FC Porto) and Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea/West Bromwich Albion).
