Throughout the Desert Diamond Cup, we’ll take a look at some of the best players from each team competing in Tucson for the Cup, as we look to crown the CARF International Most Valuable Player, awarded to the outstanding player of the tournament.

Since exploding onto the Major League Soccer scene in 2014 with 22 goals on the season, Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer hasn’t looked back.

The charismatic Englishman has remained a fan favorite both on and off the field since being drafted 16th overall in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft.

On the field, Dwyer set a team record last season, becoming the first player in Sporting Kansas City history to score 12 or more goals in three consecutive seasons.

Off the field, his marriage to U.S. Women’s National Team member Sydney LeRoux has elevated the pair to a “power couple” in the world American soccer, with hundreds of thousands of followers on Twitter and Instagram.

With 50 goals in the last three seasons, Dwyer is expected to be one of the driving forces behind another MLS Cup run this year for Sporting Kansas City, who are looking to repeat the success of their 2013 championship season.

Catch Dom in action as Sporting Kansas City looks for their first piece of silverware this year as they compete for the Desert Diamond Cup on Saturday, February 18th. (TICKETS)
