The MLS is not only competition that Sporting Kansas City is performing as they have a number of matches scheduled to play in the CONCACAF Champions League. Peter Vermes is the manager of the American team and he revealed his satisfaction about his clubs’ 1-1 draw against Real Esteli.

When the match concluded, the head coach of Sporting Kansas City, Peter Vermes said:  “We want to go and get three points. There are a lot of things within the game that wound up being very difficult. It was not an easy game to play for a number of reasons. It wound up being very difficult. At the end, to come here and get a point from them at their place is good. We just have to make sure we take care of business at home. The field was very hard to play. The ball was just bouncing all over the place.”

The team of Peter Vermes had to travel to Nicaragua in order to play their opening match of the CONCACAF Champions League group and an early own goal from Jorge Claros gave Real Esteli the lead at the 6th minute but Sporting Kansas City equalized the match 10 minutes later thanks to a goal which arrived from the Spanish midfielder Antonio Rodriguez Dovale as he made his mark on the score-sheet by scoring from a free-kick set-piece.
