On April 22, Seattle Sounders attacker Steve Zakuani suffered a broken tibia and fibula in the third minute of Seattle's match with the Colorado Rapids. He was taken off the field to a somber, but rousing show of support from the many travelling supporters in attendance.

Fans took to the Twittersphere to send their well wishes, writing to him directly at @stevezakuani11 and using the hashtag #forZakuani

In the following match against Toronto FC, Sounders fans displayed #11 signs in unison.  Watch the video below.
