Best Sporting KC Player 

Graham Zusi

Midfielder Graham Zusi once missed a team flight to Chicago but still managed to score a goal from his living room. That might be a slight exaggeration. Slight. But it seems as though the Zusinator — that's a nickname we've come up with; spread it around — can score from anywhere he pleases. He notches the kinds of goals that leave announcers speechless. In a game against Dallas in June, the 25-year-old Orlando, Florida, native scored two goals, one on a free kick from 45 yards out. Zusi's first career multi-goal game, the performance led to his being named Major League Soccer Player of the Month. In August, in a game against Portland, Zusi launched a missile from around 30 yards out before sweeping in a second goal from close range. There isn't a shot this guy doesn't like or can't make, which makes the team all the more dangerous. His value to Sporting is incalculable.
