Vancouver Whitecaps had been set to take on Real Salt Lake at BC Place this past weekend before Joe Corona shutdown football worldwide. That deprived you all of looking through Tom and Caroline’s wonderful photos of the match here on AFTN.
So as a tribute to our wonderful photographers we decided to honour them with this week’s AFTN MLS Team of the Week.
For those that don’t know what this section is, we think of a subject for a football team to be based around, then usually fill it with our starting XI of current (or very recent) MLS players with some appropriate name changes, or even better, just as is!
We blatantly nicked the idea from the long running BBC Radio Scotland show “Off The Ball”. It’s worked for them for 25 years, so there must be something in it! Our big difference from the original is that we actually put them in a team with a proper formation and not just a long list of random names.
Your scouting job is to come up with the subs bench, from any player from MLS or around the world, and leave your player suggestions in the comments section.
So here’s our latest MLS Team of the Week, the Photography XI”.
Can you add a few more?
Team Name : New England Resolution

This certainly looks like a team that will take a lot of shots. How many of them will be picture perfect though?
