The soccer world is grinding to a stand still like the rest of the world in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) sweeps the globe. Most leagues around the world have put a stop to their leagues and cups with only a handful still playing through this past weekend. Among former Sporting Kansas City players and KC locals, just five players played in games this past week. The high mark was probably former midfielder, Milos Stojcev, who scored a goal for his club, FK Vozdovac, but they still ended up losing the game. Overall, of the six games played among the five players, only one, Igor Juliao, won a game this past week. Here’s this week’s full update.
