The newest episode of the Sporting Kansas City Show Podcast debuted Tuesday night on Sports Radio 810 WHB as Aly Trost and Conall McCourt recapped a momentous 2-0 road win over the Galaxy that vaulted Manager Peter Vermes' men to the summit of the Supporters' Shield standings. Goalkeeper Tim Melia delivered a sterling performance with seven saves en route to the shutout, while forwards Johnny Russell and Khiry Shelton opened their 2021 scoring accounts in a Fourth of July battle that won't soon be forgotten.
In addition to breaking down the victory and assessing the current MLS landscape with Sporting topping the charts in points (26), wins (eight) and goals scored (24), Trost and McCourt welcomed MLSsoccer.com reporter Tom Bogert to the show. Bogert focused his lens on the upcoming 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, which will see the United States Men's National Team play all three Group B matches at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City.
To make matters even more compelling for Sporting fans, 19-year-old midfielder Gianluca Busio has earned his highly anticipated call-up to the U.S. MNT for the prestigious tournament. Bogert discusses Busio's impressive development, how he fits into the national team and what the future may have in store for a player who has garnered attention from clubs across Europe.
