Blue Links: Kamara Injured, International Call-up, Khiry Shelton, NYCFC Stadium

All the Sporting Kansas City news you could ever need. And some other soccer news as well.

MLS: New England Revolution at Sporting KC Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s get right to the links.

Sporting KC

(SKC) 15-year-old Gianluca Busio gets an international call-up with the United States U-17’s. They’ll start play in the 2018 Sportchain Cup on Friday (meaning he won’t be available for Swope Park Rangers on Saturday). Full Schedule.

(PRO) Kevin Stott will referee Sporting Kansas City’s match on Friday against the Whitecaps.

(MLS Soccer) Kei Kamara will miss Friday’s game against SKC and Anthony Blondell is looking to step up in his place.

(SKC Twitter) Free Tim Melia bobbleheads to the first 10,000 fans at Friday’s game against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Good news, the forcast is up to a balmy 62 degrees.

(SKC Twitter) Friday’s game is also college night. There are ticket packages available with a scarf for your college that’s co-branded with SKC. I don’t see Missouri State on the list though.

(SKC Twitter) Because today’s links is just SKC’s twitter (almost) let’s also remind you that MLS is celebrating Earth Day with jersey’s made entirely of materials recycled from the ocean.

(MLS Soccer) Khiry Shelton is helping the team win in ways beyond scoring goals, according to Peter Vermes. But... a striker has to score. Right?

(Talkin’ Touches) The boys are back with a breakdown of the Seattle Sounders game.

(The Blue Testament) Roger Espinoza is second all-time in yellow cards for Sporting KC. If you ain’t first, you’re last.

(MLS Soccer) Daniel Salloi: Rising Star

Around the World

(CBS Sports) Toronto FC lost the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League against Chivas Guadalajara 2-1 on Tuesday night.

(New York Yimby) New York City FC may finally be getting a stadium as part of a $700 million project that includes a 26,000 seat stadium in actual NYC, instead of New Jersey.

(MLS Soccer) The league released a stadium on MLS Expansion Tuesday... yet again not making an announcement but Cincinnati seems on the verge of getting in. A lot of people are guessing it’s tied to Columbus leaving for Austin.

(Oregon Live) Former FC Kansas City forward Sydney Leroux got into it with Portland Timbers and Thorns owner Merritt Paulson.
