Training in KC - Sunday

About 12 hours after arriving at the team hotel following Saturday's game, the Rapids were at the Kansas City Wizards training center beginning preparations for Tuesday's Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Qualifier.

There were some different faces at the morning workout. Pablo Mastroeni, Colin Clark, Julien Baudet, and Conor Casey returned to Denver on Sunday, while Claudio Lopez, Andre Akpan, and Michael Holody arrived in KC.

One item to note: the U.S. Open Cup allows teams to list no more than five international players on a game day roster. For the Rapids, the available internationals for Tuesday will be Danny Earls, Jamie Smith, Claudio Lopez, Omar Cummings, and Mehdi Ballouchy.
