Nielsen nabs Save of the Week

By Adam Zdroik

Sporting KC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen is a protector of the net. Whether it is by hand or by foot, he can make the save.

That much was evident as he collects MLS Save of the Week for Weeks 13-15. His foot save denied Danny Koevermans in Sporting Kansas City's 2-0 win over Toronto FC at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. Roll video...

Nielsen, who won by the slimmest of margins at 0.5%, is becoming the master of the foot save. Can we forget about these amazing saves against Seattle last season at LSP? Not likely.

The award for MLS Save of the week is the second of the season for Nielsen. His first came in Week 7 on a finger-tip save against Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
