For the sixth time in his career, Graham Zusi is headed to the MLS All-Star Game.
The Sporting Kansas City veteran defender was named to the 2018 MLS All-Star Fan XI, the league announced Monday. The right back previously earned All-Star honors from 2012-2015 and 2017.
The All-Star Game, which pits the MLS All-Stars against Italian powerhouse Juventus, will be played Aug. 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Zusi, 31, has played every minute of all 16 MLS matches this season, helping Sporting KC post an MLS-best seven shutouts and a league-low 1.00 goals-against average. Zusi (two goals, one assist) leads MLS in touches (1,439) and has 29 chances created, tops among league defenders.
