With the decision of being player of the month this month I'm basing it on not just the play on the field but the play when the guy was not on the field. With his replacement being responsible in part for at least two goals, this month, player of the month goes to Aurelien Collin.

Collin had two goals in the month of July and helped to anchor the Sporting KC back line. Since originally coming into the lineup he's helped improve the defensive performance. And with Daneil Cyrus having a few problems replacing him the last game plus, Collin has shown his worth this month even more.
