Sporting Kansas City and U.S. national team midfielder Graham Zusi has emerged into one of the most gifted players of his generation.
The University of Maryland product has flourished at Sporting Kansas City in recent seasons and that success has also transported itself to the international stage with the USMNT.
Ahead of the World Cup this summer, Zusi is expected to play a pivotal for Jurgen Klinsmann’s men in Brazil. So, who better to profile in the latest edition of MLS Insider Presented by adidas? ‘Raising Zusi’ is the newest episode of MLS Insider as we go on a journey through Zusi’s childhood in Florida and his early days in Kansas City alongside fellow U.S. international Matt Besler.
If you, like me, can’t get enough of Zusi, you can watch him and his SKC’s teammates take on the Columbus Crew this Sunday live on NBCSN at 4 p.m. ET. You can stream SKC vs. Columbus live online if you can’t get to a TV set.
