Azira has picked up where he left off in 2016 with his no-nonsense approach in the center of the park. The Uganda international was named Man-of-the-Match following the 2-2 home tie with Minnesota United FC.
Badji leads the club’s scoring charts after three games having netted in both home contests, including the match-winner against New England Revolution in the season opener, and the first of the night against Minnesota.
Burch, meanwhile, was part of a defense which kept a clean sheet in game one, and was a big threat on the offensive side of play in the match with Minnesota, delivering the inch-perfect cross for the Rapids’ equalizer. He was also named on the ‘bench’ for the MLS Team of the Week (Week 3).
