The Columbus Crew’s Lucas Zelarayan and Mohamed Faris were named to the MLS Team of the Matchday on Monday. This came following the players’ impressive performances in the Crew’s 2-0 win against D.C. United. Zelarayan scored a penalty kick in the match, while Farsi bagged an assist on the second goal to help seal the three points.
Farsi has earned significant minutes after signing a first-team contract last year. Despite his young age, Farsi has already become an important player for his team, showcasing his impressive speed and technical ability on the field.
In the game against D.C., Farsi put in an outstanding performance, registering an assist and completing over 70 percent of his passes. He also made several key interceptions and tackles, helping his team maintain the lead throughout the second half.
Zelarayan, on the other hand, is a more experienced player who has been with the Black & Gold since 2020. He is known for his creativity and attacking prowess, having scored several important goals for his team in the past.
Against United., Zelarayan was once again in top form, scoring a penalty kick minutes before the first half whistle and providing creativity in the midfield, allowing the play to flow through him in order for Columbus to gain an attack through the middle of the park. He also completed over 80 percent of his passes and made several key tackles in midfield.
It is no surprise that both Farsi and Zelarayan were named to the MLS Team of the Matchday, as they were instrumental in the Crew’s victory. Their impressive performances demonstrate why they have been regulars in head coach Wilfried Nancy’s lineup so far this season.
For Farsi, this recognition is particularly noteworthy, as he is a relatively new player in the league. His inclusion in the Team of the Matchday is a testament to his talent and potential.
As for Zelarayan, this is just another accolade to add to his already impressive résumé. He has quickly become a fan favorite in Columbus, and it is clear that his contributions to the team are invaluable.
Overall, the inclusion of Farsi and Zelarayan in the MLS Team of the Matchday is a well-deserved honor for both players. Their performances in the recent matches for Columbus were truly outstanding, and they have once again shown why they are among the best players in MLS. As the season progresses, it will be exciting to see what other impressive performances they have in store for us.
Farsi and Zelarayan look to continue their hot performances along with their teammates this Saturday when the Crew hosts the New England Revolution. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET from Lower.com Field.
