Mexican-American stars on the move

MOST COMMENTED

[NWSL] FC Kansas City and the Seattle Reign FC exchanged Mexican-American stars in the biggest trade in NWSL's young history. FCKC sent Renae Cuellar, tied for fifth in the league with five goals, to the Reign for midfielder Teresa Noyola and the NWSL rights to defender Nikki Krzysik for the 2014 season.

Cuellar got off to a hot start, scoring the first goal in league history and four goals in her first five games, but she was slowed with a knee injury on June 6 and lost her starting job.

The Reign has Megan Rapinoe back from French club Lyon to handle the playmaking duties but it needs help up front.

Both Cuellar and Noyola were born and raised in California and played in the U.S. youth system before switching their allegiances and playing for Mexico.

The deal was the second in recent days involving an exchange of allocated players. Boston dealt Canadian defender Carmelina Moscato to Chicago for Canadian forward Adriana Leon.

    A Mexican for a Mexican and a Canadian for a Canadian? I understand that NWSL assigned equal number of nationals to each team at the beginning of the league. But this should have ended right there. If a team signed more Mexican players or less Canadian players should do so without reservation.
