(Beau Chevalier / Vancouver FC)
Eugene “Pele” Martinez named to the Team of the Week for Week 7
Vancouver FC continues to be represented in CPL’s Team of the Week with Eugene “Pele” Martinez becoming the most recent addition in Week 7. For the second straight game, VFC held a clean sheet and the Belize native played an important role on the team’s backline to secure the 0-0 result.
Martinez won all five of his aerial duels and registered a team high of nine clearances in Sunday’s match. Currently, Martinez ranks second in the CPL for clearances (35) and fifth for shots blocked (6). He is also only one of six players (excluding goalkeepers) to play in all 2023 matches for a total of 630 minutes played.
Vancouver FC will look to continue holding their disciplined defensive form when they face Pacific FC in one of the biggest matches at Willoughby Park this Friday.
