KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Before they compete in the 2016 USL Cup Final on Sunday night, three members of the Swope Park Rangers will get the chance to compete on the international stage.
Sporting Kansas City announced on Tuesday that Tyler Pasher, Tomas Granitto and Alex Molano – along with Nansel Selbol – have been included in the club’s squad for Wednesday’s CONCACAF Champions League clash with Central FC at Children’s Mercy Sporting Park.
Selbol was sent off in SPR’s Western Conference Final with Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 this past Saturday, and is suspended for Sunday’s USL Cup Final against the New York Red Bulls II.
The contest with Central FC concludes SKC’s Champions League campaign this season, with Vancouver Whitecaps FC having claimed first place in the group with a perfect 4-0-0 record. Granitto, Molano and Selbol would all make their first appearance in the tournament after being called-up on short-term loans from the Rangers. Pasher made his CCL debut in SKC’s 2-1 defeat to the Whitecaps on Sept. 13.
