Herculez Gomez will go on and have a great period with the LA Galaxy team where he will manage to win the 2002 and 2005 MLS Cup.
The Sporting Kansas City played extensively to defeat New York City with a win of 3-1 on 10th July at Children’s Mercy Park.
It was indeed a busy opening to the game as the scoring was opened by Benny Feilhaber within 8 minutes of its start. Thereafter, Frank Lampard lost his goal 6 minutes later. It was indeed the 3rd goal in 3 games for the former England and Chelsea midfielder. However, the scores that were at the same level lasted only for a short while as Sporting Kansas hit back within a few minutes later.
Feilhaber has been playing for Sporting KC as a midfielder and he has always performed brilliantly in majority of the matches as a midfielder. His contribution towards the match led to the victory and he earned the Team of the Week honors on Monday. In addition, there was another standout performer of the match who successful scored his first goal. Jimmy Medranda, the midfielder was the first one to restore his 1st goal in MLS as he rifled from a distance with other hosts. Ike Opara had to wrap up his scoring due to Frederic Brilliant. The other game that was held on the same day was indeed yet another interesting match. The Portland Timbers and the New York Red Bulls played out a draw that was goalless at Red Bull Arena.
New York Red Bulls have significantly strengthened their defence by signing Kemar Lawrence from the Jamaican club Harbour View FC. The 22-year-old Jamaican international has been with New York Red Bulls on a trial basis for the last few weeks.
He appears to have impressed the management in the pre-season. The club’s sporting director, Ali Curtis, says that the addition of Lawrence is a huge boost to the team since the player brings in a lot of talent at an attractive age. Lawrence has been withHarbour View since 2011 and he made 50 appearances for the club last season.
His talent helped the club win the National Premier league back in 2013. The brimming talent allowed him to make his national debut at the age of 20. He has since featured in 13 appearances for the Jamaican national team. Roy Miller is the regular starter for New York Red Bulls in the left back position. Lawrence is not expected to jump straight into the team as a first-team regular. Instead, manager Jesse Marsch is expected to slowly introduce him into the team. New York Red Bulls could only manage a 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City in their first league match of the season. Read more
