Review: Sporting KC win a thrilling game against a fighting Rapids team

Taken from Sporting KC's Google+

Well this was quite the thrilling game. Colorado definitely made it a challenge for Sporting constantly pushing which is something that Sporting isn't completely use to but I think they almost welcomed it. Even after the Rapids were able to pull level with Sporting they didn't seem to panic and continued to play their game. The Rapids didn't seem to know how to capitalize on the opportunity though and figure out how to pull ahead. It did seem that Peter Vermes coach for Sporting might have been a bit in panic mode or maybe he just wanted to insure his team came out on top as he put in three strong offensive players and substituted three strong offensive players. Feilhaber, Dwyer and Saad all came off for Kamara, Sapong and Bunbury who really seemed to make the difference in this game and allowed Sporting to get the late go ahead goal. Again Colorado just couldn't seem to figure out then how to get another equalizer and their frantic play and pressing up the field almost assured Sporting to get the victory even with an additional four minutes of stoppage time.

It really was a good game and unfortunately it was Kei's last game in a Sporting uniform as he was transferred to Middlesbrough FC which is a club in the Championship League which is a second tier team in European soccer. No its not top flight but it is still a step up for Kei and it will also make international travel for Sierra Leone national team games easier for him.

Sporting now takes on the Columbus Crew who is definitely a team that has been struggling but this is the MLS and you never know who might be able to sneak in a victory or find a way to lose a game.
