Hello and happy Tuesday, everybody, it’s Tyler Henry, back with another KINA Sports Update presented by Salina Regional Orthopedic and Sports Medicine…


The world of US Men’s National Team Soccer received a rude awakening in Kansas City last night after a 1-0 loss to Uruguay eliminated the team from the Copa America without reaching the knockout stage.

This came on the heels of a 2-1 loss to Panama and an uninspiring 2-0 win over Bolivia, which all culminated in the US being eliminated from a group many expected them to waltz through on home soil.

Many say this calls into question the direction of US Men’s Soccer since the 2022 World Cup, and much of that criticism has fallen on head coach Gregg Berhalter, who may not be around for the next World Cup


Speaking of soccer in Kansas City the KC Current lead the National Women’s Soccer League standings with 35 points and a record of 10-5-0. The Current will be back in action against the Orlando Pride this Saturday.


And finally, a look ahead to this Saturday where the Salina Liberty will open their playoff push at Tony’s Pizza Events Center with Southwest Kansas at 3:00.

Tickets for that game are on sale now and the game will be streamed for free with video and commentary on Salina Post

Don’t forget you can also tune in for the Coach O Show tonight at 6:00 or better yet, join us live at The Alley in Downtown Salina
