Camilo wins Player of the Week award for fourth time in 2013


Had the Vancouver Whitecaps made the playoffs, Camilo would be at the leading edge of the who-is-MVP discussion. He’ll still get some consideration. After all, he’s been the Player of the Week enough times, hasn’t he?

For the fourth time this year, Camilo got the weekly honour from the membership of the North American Soccer Reporters. The Brazilian forward scored three times in a 3-0 win over the Colorado Rapids Sunday.

And, while the game held no post-season meaning for the Whitecaps, it did allow Camilo to usurp Mike Magee for the Golden Boot as the league’s top scorer. Camilo scored on a penalty, then got two more in the second half to take the scoring title.

This week’s honour marked the seventh player of the week honour for a Whitecap in 2013. That’s the most out of any MLS team, though we’re sure coach Martin Rennie would trade all the individual honours for a playoff spot.

How The 11 voted: Camilo. Sure, the game was in the play-for-pride category, but a hat trick on the final weekend of the season is still impressive.
