Sporting Kansas City will send six players out this weekend for international play -- five of them in the CONCACAF region.
The most notable call-ups are usual starters for KC: Kei Kamara was a late addition to the Sierra Leone squad, Teal Bunbury gets his second chance to impress Jurgen Klinsmann and Team USA, and Roger Espinoza will continue seeing the field for Honduras.
Also missing will be new boy Peterson Joseph (Haiti), the seldom seen Shavar Thomas (Jamaica) and the recovering Craig Rocastle (Grenada).
Thankfully, the only games many of these players are likely to miss is the Chivas Guadalajara friendly at Livestrong Sporting Park on Wednesday. (Except Rocastle, who will be in action for Grenada on Oct. 15 and will most likely miss the New York game.)
