Father-to-be Gerso Fernandes shines in victory over Vancouver

On an evening that saw Sporting Kansas City stroll to a 3-0 victory in British Columbia, no one stood out more than the father-to-be.

Gerso Fernandes, who delivered a man-of-the-match performance on Saturday, scored one goal—arguably two, really—and assisted another as Sporting posted another shutout win and moved within four points of playoff positioning in the Western Conference.

Given the special circumstances, you can safely assume Saturday’s match is one that Gerso won’t soon forget. After all, it came the day before he and his wife Emmy expect to welcome their first child Gerso Jr.
