Major League Soccer names Seattle Sounders midfielder Cristian Roldan to Week 19 Team of the Week

Major League Soccer on Monday named Seattle Sounders midfielder Cristian Roldan to the Week 19 Team of the Week for his efforts in a 2-1 win over Atlanta United on Sunday.

Roldan started his first match since June 1 after missing the last four games while away with the United States competing in the Concacaf Gold Cup. He assisted on Raúl Ruidíaz’s highlight-reel goal and was a force in the middle of the park. Roldan completed 94.5 percent of his passes, including 93.3 percent in Atlanta’s half of the field, had 74 touches, five recoveries and a team-high four tackles.

The Sounders return to action on Wednesday when they host Germany’s Borussia Dortmund in an international friendly (7:30 p.m. PT; JOEtv, YouTube TV, El Rey 1360 AM | TICKETS) before hosting the rival Portland Timbers on Sunday (6:30 p.m. PT; FS1, YouTube TV, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM | TICKETS).
