Joining him in Kansas City will be a familiar face to Sporting Kansas City fans, as former Sporting and Swope Park Ranger/Sporting KC II player Tyler Pasher has been named to Canada’s roster for the tournament. Pasher has had a successful season for the Houston Dynamo having returned to MLS scoring three goals and adding three assists in the eight games he’s played in this season.

Elsewhere, former Sporting Homegrown Player and Kansas City Comets player, Matt Lewis got to lift some silverware this past week as Detroit City FC won the NISA’s Spring League, beating the Los Angeles Force 1-0 in the final.
