3. Ercan Kara
Designated player striker Ercan Kara has been the subject of much scrutiny throughout his short Major League Soccer career. The Austrian forward is the usual fall guy for Orlando's offensive struggles as the lead man in the attack.
However, despite the outside criticism, Kara is proving to be a solid center forward with flashes of star ability if he can find better finishing. The former Rapid Vienna star threatened the goal against Columbus better than almost any games in his MLS career. Kara finished with four shots --- three in the box --- and 0.65 expected goals.
He actually turned one of those chances into a goal to get Orlando on the board and help start the comeback effort in the second half. Kara still needs to be more efficient with his chances, and you'd like to see him impact the game more with his skilled feet and big frame, but he's finally starting to deliver in the final third when the Lions need him most.
