A loss in the Kansas City isn't the end of the world after three straight victories but wasted opportunities and lack of clarity in the final third make this game more frustrating than the score and the statistics indicate. Sporting held a 57-43 possession advantage over ninety minutes but the Fire showed that they have enough in the attack to create chances although they also showed that they are capable of not taking advantage of those when presented.
