This might very well be John Brooks’ best week of the season.
Days after scoring the game-winning goal in Hertha Berlin’s 2-0 triumph over TSV Eintracht Braunschweig, Brooks was named the Bundesliga Player of the Week for Week 32 on Wednesday. Brooks earned 43.13% of the vote to beat out Marco Reus, Claudio Pizarro, Halil Altintop, Ivan Perisic and Johannes Geis for the award.
The 21-year-old centerback scored the winner against Eintracht Braunschweig in the 61st minute, helping Hertha Berlin post a second straight clean sheet and snap a nine-game winless run in league play.
What do you think of Brooks being named Player of the Week? Think he will be included in the U.S. Men’s National Team’s preliminary World Cup camp? Do you see him making it to Brazil?
