Sunil Chhetri scored on debut as Kansas City Wizards thrashed University of Tulsa 5-1 in a friendly match in Missouri,United States. The forward,who joined Kansas on Tuesday as the first Indian player to ply his trade in MLS,came on the field in the second half of the match yesterday and scored the team’s fourth goal in a convincing win.
The other scorers for Kansas were Josh Wolff,Teal Bunbury,Korede Aiyegbusi and Igor Kostrov. Chhetri had missed the team’s Major League Soccer (MLS) opener against D C United last weekend which the team won 4-0.
The side,which do not have any MLS engagement this weekend,will play an intra-club match on Saturday. Their next MLS match is against Colorado Rapids at home on April 10,followed by an away game against Seattle the next Saturday.
The Wizards will be up against LA Galaxy in the match after that.
