KANSAS CITY (May 26, 2017) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) named John Sosa to the USA All-Stars Team in the upcoming MASL International Challenge Exhibition in St. Louis on June 16th. The International Challenge pits some of the best players in the MASL against each other in a USA vs the World format.

Defender John Sosa joins the USA team after another exciting season for the Comets. Sosa was born in Medellin, Colombia and has since become a naturalized US Citizen as he calls Kansas City home. He played in all 20 games for Kansas City, scoring six goals. His 25 assists were second in the league. Sosa has played with the Comets since 2011 and has accumulated 52 goals, 115 assists and 191 points in his career.

More players will be announced next week. Each MASL team was invited to nominate their players for the International Challenge match and the International Challenge committee will select the rosters.
