San Diego, CA (June 15, 2021) -Midfielder Alejandro Guido was voted USL Championship Player of the Week after he scored a goal and had an assist to lead SD Loyal’s comeback 2-1 win against the LA Galaxy II June 12.
Guido is also part of the USL Championship Team of the Week for Week 8 of the 2021 regular season, announced by the league Tuesday.
A San Diego native, Guido joined SD Loyal permanently this offseason after a loan spell from Los Angeles FC during the 2020 season. Guido made an immediate impact, first hitting the crossbar before producing an outstanding solo goal that saw him juke past one defender in the left channel before moving centrally to fire home a low shot just inside the left post to level the game after coming on with his side trailing with 22 minutes to go. Guido led a counterattack down the right side and delivered a sweeping cross to the back post for Miguel Berry to head home with six minutes to go and earn SD Loyal its second win of the season. The result extended the club’s undefeated run to four games.
Guido earned 43 percent of the ballot for his performances to earn the award. Birmingham Legion FC’s JJ Williams and Sporting Kansas City II’s Enoch Mushagalusa finished tie for second on 21 percent after Williams recorded a late game-winning goal and assist in Legion FC’s 2-1 victory against OKC Energy FC on Saturday and Mushagalusa scored his first two goals of the season in SKC II’s 2-2 draw with Atlanta United 2 last Wednesday night.
The Championship’s Player of the Week is selected by the USL National Media Panel, which is made up of representatives from each media market in the Championship.
