Nico Hasler is the latest Sporting Kansas City player to be called up to his national team. He will join the Liechtenstein Men’s National Team when they resume qualifying play for UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying in Group J.
Hasler will join Liechtenstein after Sporting KC’s final match of 2019 at FC Dallas Sunday. Liechtenstein will play both of their matches at home in the capital of Vaduz. Armenia is up first on Saturday, Oct. 12th. Italy will be no small challenge for the Liechtensteiners on Oct. 15th.
Liechtenstein lost to Italy 6-0 in March and lost 3-0 to Armenia in June. With no wins, five losses and one draw, Lichtenstein does not look likely to advance out of their group.
Hasler is one of Liechtenstein’s top players, having been named the Liechtensteiner Footballer of the Year in 2015, 2017 and 2018. Hasler has started all six qualifiers and will likely feature in the remaining matches as well.
