Summer international friendly season arrives this weekend (and World Cup Qualifying is tagging along right behind), which means Sporting Kansas City is destined to be without some key contributors.
It's actually already started.
Midfield maestroGraham Zusi got the USA call-up yesterday . Forward Kei Kamara appears to have gotten the Sierra Leone call
C.J. Sapong and Teal Bunbury didn't get the nod this time around. No surprises there. Sapong has been in a mini-slump and Bunbury has only recently found a vein of form.
The only other Sporting player that usually leaves for international appearances is Peterson Joseph, but Haiti does not have any matches on the schedule right now.
