They don't call him the Nova Scotia Messi for nothing!

On the heels of a scintillating run of form, Jacob Shaffelburg has been named to the Week 28 MLS Team of the Week.

After falling behind in the first half, the 21-year-old kickstarted the comeback effort just after halftime. A beautiful team counterattack was finished off brilliantly to draw the Reds level in the 48th minute.

But he wasn't done there.

Shaffelburg was a force to be reckoned with on the left wing all night and picked up a pair of assists to go along with his goal on the night.

His first found the foot of Mark Delgado at the far post with a perfectly curled ball behind the defence. Just 10 minutes later, Shaffelburg would bag the match-winning assist in similar fashion, this time finding Ifunanyachi Achara all alone in the area.

Week 28 marks Shaffelburg's second inclusion on the MLS Team of the Week after earning a spot on the TOTW bench in Week 5. Check out the rest of the Team of the Week below.
