Key player of Chicago Fire
He is the best assist man for his team and in that area he equals the team he will face tonight with 5 assists.

He is a player who is in his prime and has very good vision to position himself in the area, which is a problem for opposing defenses.
Chicago needs to deliver results

That game ended with a 1-0 score thanks to Robert Beric's goal in the 32nd minute.
