It's been a fantastic, whirlwind week for Sporting Kansas City.
Manager Peter Vermes' men lifted the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title last Wednesday, sandwiched between a pair of important league wins that vaulted the club within a point of first place in the Western Conference.
As such, there is no shortage of talking points ahead of Saturday's crucial clash with first-place Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Children's Mercy Park, set to kick off at 8 p.m. CT. To preview the match and reflect on the team's recent success, Vermes and midfielders Ilie and Benny Feilhaber have each made appearances on Sports Radio 810 WHB over the last 24 hours.
Ilie joined the Sporting KC Show on Tuesday night, discussing the acquisition of his U.S. green card and Sporting KC's signature, possession-based style on which he thrives. Feilhaber was on The Border Patrol this morning, sharing the keys to navigating a busy stretch of matches for the club, before Vermes joined The Program to speak about the club's incredible trophy haul over the last six seasons as well as the development of young players such as Latif Blessing and Daniel Salloi.
