For too long, matches like Sporting Kansas City’s win over the Rapids ended differently. They would dominate opponents without the deserved result. That breakthrough goal always seemed to elude this team. But then the club spent $10 million on a lethal striker named Alan Pulido. And all of a sudden the team got way better.
It’s almost like they are TEN MILLION DOLLARS better!
We saw goals from four different players in an all-around great performance last night vs the Colorado Rapids. Andreu Fontas came in clutch as a late replacement and not only helped secure the shutout, but got rewarded with a goal of his own. Gerso Fernandes reminded everyone what the #GerShow really is with an absolutely top class goal - and celebration to follow.
With the season ending surgery for Graham Zusi, there is really only one option left at right back. Jaylin Lindsey has been somewhat inconsistent this season, but looked very strong last night. If he continues to play like that with the rest of the back line, Sporting will be a contender for MLS Cup.
