Chicago Fire rookie Jalil Anibaba became just the second defender to win the MLS Player of the Week award, joining the Seattle Sounders' Jeff Parke.

In Saturday's game against the Columbus Crew, Anibaba scored twice on first-half headers in their 3-2 victory in the last game of their season.

He and Marco Pappa are the only players to win the award for the Fire this year. In addition, Anibaba is a strong contender for the MLS rookie-of-the-year honors.
