MLS Regular Season
The results are in and MLSsoccer.com readers resoundingly voted for tomorrow's #TORvSKC match-up as the MLS Stream of the Week (6 p.m. CT live on KMCI 38 the Spot and SKCTV). Sporting KC takes a four-game road winning streak into BMO Field to face Toronto FC, who boasts the second-highest attendance average in Major League Soccer this season.
In the previous meeting between the two Eastern Conference contenders, Dom Dwyer (14g, 0a) scored twice in a 2-2 draw at Sporting Park in May. His English counterpart Jermain Defoe (11g, 2a) will miss Saturday's rematch due to caution accumulation and, in his place, Toronto FC could turn to former MLS MVP Dwayne De Rosario. A six-time member of the MLS Best XI, De Rosario ranks sixth on Major League Soccer's all-time goal scoring chart with 103 goals.

It's been less than three weeks since Sporting KC defender Matt Besler and Graham Zusi returned to the United States, following the USMNT's successful run at the World Cup that saw them advance out of the "Group of Death" into the Round of 16.
Upon returning to the States, Besler flew directly to New York to do a series of TV/radio interviews that included SportsCenter, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning. Zusi returned to Kansas City and came off the bench in Sporting KC's 1-1 draw vs. the Chicago Fire before starting a 2-1 win over the Montreal Impact the following weekend. Besler joined Zusi for the match against Montreal and capped off a six-point road trip with a start in Sporting KC's 2-1 win over the Columbus Crew last Wednesday.
MLS Insider, a collaboration between Major League Soccer and the emmy-award winning Hock Films, chronicled Besler and Zusi's return to the States - and to Sporting KC - along with their USMNT teammates across MLS.
