  1. Need to add Blaise Nkufo. :)

  2. Nkufo is actually already there, but you can't really see his icon unless you zoom way in to Kinshasa, DR Congo. There are three MLS players who were born there: Steve Zakuani, Blaise Nkufo, and Danny Mwanga.

    For that matter there are a couple players from Accra, Ghana and the same cities in The Gambia that you can't see unless you zoom all the way in.
