Razov Closing in on Record
For all the hype around Major League Soccer regarding Jaime Moreno's quest to become the leading goal scorer in league history his record is likely to be very short lived. Moreno finally broke Jason Kreis all time scoring mark just over a month ago but now very quietly Ante Razov has closed to within one goal of Moreno's current mark of 110. Expect Razov to pass Moreno and become the all time leader by the end of the season. Razov was part of MLS Inaugural College Draft being selected by the Galaxy, but after several good seasons in Chicago he moved to Spain's Racing Ferrol for two seasons, thus has played in fewer MLS games than Jaime Moreno.
Razov's 109th goal of his MLS career, a beauty that lifted Chivas USA atop the Western Conference was one of the certain candidates for goal of the year. Chivas defeated Kansas City 2-1 with two Razov goals, the winner coming three minutes into stoppage time.
