Graham Zusi just keeps on churning out impressive performances with the U.S. Men’s National Team.

Zusi delivered his latest fine outing for head coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Saturday afternoon in the U.S.’s 2-0 victory over South Korea at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. Zusi may not have scored either of the two goals, but he had a hand in setting up both of them up and his overall impactd during the course of his 82-minute outing was more than enough to earn him SBI’s Man of the Match Award.

Chris Wondolowski, who scored both goals for the Americans, was another candidate for the award. Wondolowski set the tone for the match with a fourth-minute rebound header and effectively put it out of reach with his second tally at the hour-mark.

Kyle Beckerman also earned some consideration. Beckerman put in a lot of work on both sides of the ball for the U.S., constantly putting out fires against the speedy and skilled South Koreans and moving the ball around quickly and accurately when the Americans had possession.
