Nikola Petkovic Debuts on MLS Young Players of the Matchday


Nikola Petkovic's second straight start For The Crown couldn't have gone much better for the 21-year-old. He capped off a stellar display with his first MLS goal, securing his spot among MLS's Young Players of the Matchday.

This is what MLS Writer Charles Boehm had to say about the Serbian midfielder:

"Petkovic finished with a game-high six shots, played one key pass, drew one foul, tabbed three defensive actions and won 4/5 ground duels, while showing promising understanding with big target man Patrick Agyemang. Take into account the team’s elevated numbers when he’s on the pitch, and it seems safe to assume we’ll be seeing more of him."
