Sporting punched its ticket to the 2012 postseason with a 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire in LIVESTRONG Sporting Park.
Kei Kamara, featuring a bleach-blond beard, turned Gonzalo Segares and surged down the flank. With C.J. Sapong making a run at the heart of the Fire defense, Graham Zusi pulled back to connect with the cross and smash home.
That goal held up through most of the match. Then, with fulltime approaching, both coach Frank Klopas and Segares were ejected for the visiting Fire. In the sixth minute of stoppage time, Zusi added his second, sealing the result.
