New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Sporting Kansas City midfielder Graham Zusi was named the Player of the Week on Monday for Week 5 of the 2014 Major League Soccer season.

In Sporting Kansas City?s 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rapids Saturday at Dick?s Sporting Goods Park, Zusi played a part in all three goals, scoring one and assisting on two, including the stoppage time winner.

Zusi scored the game?s first goal in the 50th minute. Sporting Kansas City midfielder Paulo Nagamura played a ball down the right side to forward Sal Zizzo who beat Colorado defender Marc Burch and crossed the ball in front of the goal to Zusi for an easy finish.
