When former Sporting Kansas City forward, Khiry Shelton, signed with Bundesliga 2 side, SC Paderborn 07, not many people expected much out of it. When Paderborn was able to gain promotion to the Bundesliga, not many people expected Shelton to play a role for the club in their campaign. In fact there were reports that he was going to be loaned back out to another Bundesliga 2 team for the season. Shelton though impressed in preseason and appeared in Paderborn’s early cup game. Then this past weekend, against the biggest team in Germany, Bayern Munich, Shelton made his Bundesliga debut, coming on for the final five minutes as Paderborn chased the game looking for a late equalizer while down 3-2. Unfortunately for Paderborn they were unable to level the game.

Elsewhere, former Sporting and Swope Park Ranger defender, Amer Didic has been recalled to the Canadian national team ahead of their League of Nations game against the United States. For Didic, who now plays for FC Edmonton in the Canadian Premier League, it is his first call up since he was called in for a friendly against Jamaica in 2017. Didic was an unused substitute in that game though. Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
