Wan Kuzain Wan Kamal came off the bench to score his first Major League Soccer (MLS) goal in Sporting Kansas City's 4-1 win over Minnesota United on Sunday.

The American-born Malaysian, who made his MLS debut against the Columbus Crew a week earlier, was subbed on in the 18th minute after Yohan Croizet picked up an injury.

At that time, the score was level at 1-1 after the visiting team's Tyrone Mears cancelled out Daniel Salloi's opener.

17 minutes after coming on, the 19-year-old put his side ahead as he sliced Graham Zusi's deflected cross through a crowded penalty area into the bottom left corner.

Cristian Lobato increased Sporting's lead three minutes later before Diego Rubio sealed the game in the 81st minute.

"[It feels] even better [than when I first signed for the Kansas City] that I cannot even describe it," he said after the match.

"That's how much it means to me and hopefully [there will be] more to come."

He also admitted that he was not sure that he actually scored the goal.

"I made good contact and Peter [Vermes] said I scored, so I listened to him that it went in," he added.
