Five things presented by Children’s Mercy Kansas City: Sporting returns home for a match with Vancouver Whitecaps | May 29, 2024

5. PULIDO REGISTERS BACK-TO-BACK ASSISTANTS

Sporting Kansas City’s Alan Pulido recorded another assist on Memo Rodriguez’s goal in the club’s 2-1 loss to the Portland Timbers at Providence Park in Oregon on Saturday evening.

Pulido received a pass from Daniel Salloi in the penalty area and calmly laid the ball down for Rodriguez, who fired home his first goal for the club from the edge of the penalty area.

Pulido now has two assists this season, both in Sporting’s last two MLS matches. Last week, Pulido helped set up Johnny Russell’s opener in the eventual 3-2 defeat to Austin FC at Q2 Stadium.

The Mexico international now has four goals and two assists in the 2024 season in all competitions and his contributions of six goals equal that of Willy Agada in the team. In the MLS regular season, Pulido’s contributions to five goals (3g, 2a) are tied with Agada (3g, 2a), Memo Rodriguez (1g, 4a) and Erik Thommy (4g, 1a) for the team lead.
