An update on former Kansas City players.

Gregg Berhalter and US Soccer announced the USA’s roster for his upcoming week’s World Cup qualifiers. One name originally missing from the list was former Sporting KC midfielder, Gianluca Busio, who has been a regular in the starting eleven for Venezia FC in the Italian Serie A. In Berhalter’s press conference it was revealed the Busio had been called up but had to be dropped after he contracted COVID. It’s disappointing for Busio as he’s been a regular fixture in the squad since last summer’s Gold Cup.

Elsewhere, player movement around the US continues ahead of leagues starting up. Former Sporting HomeGrown Player and current KC Comet, Matt Lewis will be making the move from the NISA to the USL Championship with his club Detroit City as the club announced that Lewis will be returning for the 2022 season.

Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
