Gadi Kinda grabs MLS Team of the Week honors after scintillating debut in Vancouver

Pardon the brutal pun, but this guy's MLS debut was some kinda wonderful.

Israeli newcomer Gadi Kinda helped Sporting Kansas City to an eye-opening 3-1 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday at BC Place, hammering home an MLS Goal of the Week nominee and commanding the midfield in a comprehensive first appearance for Sporting.

In addition to landing himself on the Goal of the Week ballot, Kinda was further recognized by with a spot on the Team of the Week presented by Audi. The diminutive 25-year-old was one of two MLS debutants on the Starting XI alongside the San Jose Earthquakes' Oswaldo Alanis.
