Graham Zusi: From Cookie Mobile to World Cup
[VIDEO PICK: Mini-Documentary] Sporting Kansas City's 27-year-old midfielder Graham Zusi didn't debut for the national team until 2012 but his
performances have assured him a trip to this summer's World Cup. "MLS Insider" reports on the Florida product's career from when he traveled around to tournaments in his parents' VW van, known by the
kids as the "cookie mobile," because it also served snacks between games.
"Graham Zusi's humble rise from Matt Besler's basement to Brazil" is so titled because Zusi,
after starring at the University of Maryland, lived with Besler's family after signing with Kansas City in 2009.
