Wizards Best 11 to be on the Field?

The Wizards match against Real Salt Lake this weekend, will possibly be the first time the Wizards will have a completely healthy starting 11 on the field this season. Eddie Johnson is back, and all the injuries seem to be healing up for the Wizards.

The Wizards have been winless since Eddie Johnson's last game with the team, the Wizards 3-2 win over New York. Since then, the Wizards have gone 0-3-3, and have gone from the number 1 seed in MLS to the number 6 seed. The perfect way to heal these ills may be coming to town this weekend. Real Salt Lake is one of the weakest, if not the weakest team in the league this season, and will be without at least 5 players. Freddy Adu, Nathan Sturgis, and Chris Seitz will play earlier on Saturday for the US U-20 team. Mehdi Ballouchy is suspended for this match due to yellow card accumulation, while Alecko Eskandarian is suspended due to a red card. While those players are all missing the Wizards will likely be fielding their best 11 tomorrow.

Jewsbury - Conrad - Garcia - Burciaga
Victorine - Marinelli - Harrington
Arnaud - Johnson

Anything less then a win is a major disappointment tomorrow. Anything less then a two goal win will be a bit discouraging. While RSL knocked KC out of the Open Cup, this team is struggling, they have 1 league win this season, and didn't have to face a fit Carlos Marinelli. The Wizards should win going away tomorrow with the returning Eddie Johnson.

KC - 3 (Johnson x2, Marinelli)
RSL - 1 (Williams)
