Steve Zakuani seems to constantly find new ways to make soccer fans fall in love with him. Whether it's his commitment to social causes, his play on the field or his general thoughtfulness, Zakuani is an easy guy to like.
Wednesday night, Zakuani was on Twitter answering a wide range of questions submitted by fans. It started when he offered a pair of game-worn boots to those who asked the best questions.
We learned Zakuani is a Mac user, that Patrick Ianni is his road roommate, considers Marvell Wynne a tough matchup and doesn't drink.
Here's what he posted Wednesday, from most recent to first:
