Sporting KC on International Duty

With MLS playing a limited schedule right now due to the international break, some of Sporting KC's players are on international duty.  Today two players were in session.  First, Kei Kamara and the Sierra Leone national team kicked off their 2014 World Cup qualifying today in Freetown, Sierra Leone when they took on Cape Verde.  The Leone Stars got goals from Medo Kamara and Sheriff Suma in the first half to take a 2-0 lead.  A late goal from Cape Verde wasn't enough, as Sierra Leone got their qualifying campaign off to the right start.  Kamara started and played 90 minutes for Sierra Leone.

The other player, was Roger Espinoza and Honduras.  Today they took on El Salvador in a friendly in DC at RFK Stadium.  With Espinoza suspended for Honduras' first World Cup qualifier coming up duty to his red card in last year's Gold Cup against Mexico, Espinoza didn't start the match for Honduras.  Instead, Espinoza came on as a sub for Wilson Palacios. Honduras ended up winning their last friendly before their qualifiers start, 3-0.
