Wizards captain Jimmy Conrad has been called back up to the US Men's National team for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Costa Rica. The US play in Honduras on the 10th of October and then on the 14th in DC against Costa Rica. With the call up, Conrad appears set to miss the league match against Chivas USA.
Congrats to Conrad on the call up, I'm happy for him, but I'm not incredibly happy about it. If KC some how win in Houston this weekend, they'll still have some playoff hopes alive. A win would mean KC would be likely needing another win when they take on Chivas on the 10th in LA. Doing so without Conrad will be tough, as the Wizards run while Conrad was at the Gold Cup showed.
