We found out today that the coach of the El Salavdor National Team, Carlos De los Cobos, accepted the “Espiga Dorada” award on behalf of Red Bulls defender Alfredo Pacheco. The award recognizes Pacheco as the best Salvadorian player of the 2008 season. Thirty-two athletes were also given the award in their respective sports. The Circulo de Informadores Deportivos (CID), the media association in El Salvador, selected Pacheco for the award.

“I’m proud to receive this award on behalf of the only player from the national team to play outside of El Salvador,” said Cobos.

“I want to thank God for allowing me to do what I love and to everyone else who made this award possible,” Pacheco said. “This will give me more motivation and responsibility to represent my country in a positive way in MLS and play well on the field.”

    Pacheco played GREAT tonight!

    ubi played well. That is his first time in that position so considering that i don’t think he played half bad. Hall may be good on defense but he is still a rookie and doesn’t fit the kind of people osorio was trying to get into the lineup. Hall is fast but Osorio was trying to sacrifice a little speed in order to play soccer.
