Kljestan scores again for Anderlecht

Sacha Kljestan's strong 2011-2012 season continues.

The American midfielder tallied his fifth goal of the season Wednesday, opening the scoring in Anderlecht's 2-1 victory over Zulte-Waregem. The win wrapped up the regular season for Anderlecht, which finished atop the Belgium Pro League standings and will take a three-point advantage into the six-team league playoff hexagonal, where the top two finishers qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

When Kljestan headed home Lucas Biglia's corner kick in the seventh minute, he matched his career high for goals in a single season. Kljestan scored five times in the 2008 and 2009 regular seasons while playing for Chivas USA (and he did score another goal in the 2008 MLS playoffs).

What's your take on Kljestan's season? Hope to see him be a part of World Cup qualifying?
