Sporting Kansas City travels to the land of soccer hipsters for its last regular season game in the cradle of soccer civilization* (the Pacific Northwest) in an effort to chop down the Portland Timbers.*I say before we give the keys to the future of U.S. soccer to the region, let’s get at least one of those three teams a grass field. With me?
The Timbers roll into this game struggling -- having not picked up a win since May 21, a five-game stretch that includes three games at Jeld-Wen Field.
Sporting comes in completely the opposite -- riding seven-game unbeaten streak.
It’s a late one tonight, with coverage on KSMO-TV (Ch. 62) starting at 9:30 p.m. and kickoff at 10. I’ve heard that Callum Williams will announce alongside Jake Yadrich (who joined him for the Philly game).
