KANSAS CITY, Kan. --  MLS Cup champion Sporting Kansas City acquired midfielder Sal Zizzo from the Portland Timbers for allocation money as it began to retool its roster on Friday.

Zizzo scored two goals and had eight assists while playing one year for Chivas USA and the last three seasons for Portland. He's also spent time with Hannover 96 in Germany's Bundesliga.

A former standout at UCLA, Zizzo played for the U.S. men's national team against Sweden in August 2007. He's also represented the United States on several junior national teams, and started all five of the U.S. matches at the 2007 U-20 World Cup in Canada.

The 26-year-old Zizzo will occupy a senior roster spot with Sporting KC.
