Sporting Kansas City forward Daniel Salloi has been selected to the bench of the latest MLS Team of the Week presented by Audi.
The 25-year-old Sporting KC Academy product saw his storybook season continue Wednesday in a 1-1 draw against the San Jose Earthquakes at Children's Mercy Park. With 94 minutes on the clock and Sporting down a goal, Salloi hammered home from close range to record the latest game-tying goal in club regular season history.
Salloi's case for MLS All-Star inclusion has become undeniable in recent weeks. The Hungarian ranks among the league leaders in goals, goals and primary assists combined, match-winning goals, shots and involvement in the opponent's penalty area.
The potent resume illustrated below underscores the fact that Salloi, quite simply, has been the most effective winger in MLS this season.
In arguably the biggest match of the 2021 MLS regular season to date, Salloi and second-place Sporting Kansas City (8-3-3, 27 points) will visit first-place Seattle Sounders FC (9-1-5, 32 points) in an 8 p.m. CT showcase on Sunday night at Lumen Field.
The top-of-the-table clash will be shown live on Bally Sports Kansas City, Bally Sports Midwest, BallySports.com and the Bally Sports app as well as Sports Radio 810 WHB and La Grande 1340 AM.
