Cyrus Called into Trinidad Camp

Daneil Cyrus is not in camp with Sporting KC due to "personal reasons" and it doesn't look like he'll be joining the team soon. Word out of Trinidad (h/t The Daily Wiz) is that Cyrus will be joining the Trinidad and Tobago U-23 for a camp. The camp will be capped off by two friendlies again the full national team of Guyana. The teams will play on the 14th and the 16th, the first match being less than a week away. Since Cyrus has yet to be in camp, it would seem unlikely that the TnT international would return for a few days then leave for Trinidad, but stranger things have happened. Trinidad continues to prepare for their Olympic qualifying matches coming up.

Cyrus continues to be one of the three players to not report to camp yet for KC along with Birahim Diop and Pablo Punyed. While Cyrus only played just over 100 minutes, his loss could be a bit of a blow for KC. KC entered this season with Cyrus likely being one of the candidates to be the center back on the bench, but the 4th or 5th option overall behind Matt Besler, Aurelien Collin, Julio Cesar, and possibly Lawrence Olum. If Cyrus doesn't end up on the team this year it would put Olum firmly in that spot, although he'd likely face some challenge from rookies Cyprian Hedrick and Stefan Antonijevic.
