LISTEN: Matt Besler opens up about his Sporting KC and U.S. MNT career in "No Other Home"

Sporting Kansas City captain Matt Besler sat down with NBC Sports soccer analyst Andy Edwards on Friday to talk all about his new book No Other Home, now available on and at bookstores across Kansas City.

In a free-flowing and candid discussion on Edwards' Talkin' Touches podcast, Besler touched on a variety of compelling and insightful topics, including his best and worst experiences at the 2014 FIFA World Cup (12:30), his decision to sign a new contract with Sporting KC in 2014 rather than moving to Europe (19:00), his very serious and scary concussion in 2016 (31:00) and the most recent season for club and country, which brought a mix of joy and heartbreak (40:00).
