Matt Besler carries Kansas City’s soccer flag into Brazil for the World Cup

When Sporting Kansas City defender and Overland Park native Matt Besler and the U.S. Men’s National Team kick off World Cup play against Ghana on Monday in Brazil, he’ll be in a place he never reached in his dreams. No kid from the KC area has ever played in the World Cup. “Kansas City will always be a big part of me; I carry that with me wherever I go …” Besler said. “I really do feel that I’m playing for the city.”
