Chhetri Set to Play Tuesday
Wizards fans will get the chance to see Indian national team striker, Sunil Chhetri for the first time in a competitive game this week. The Star is reporting that Chhetri will be on the team that will be taking on the Colorado Rapids on Tuesday in a US Open Cup qualifier at UMKC. Last week in two friendlies, Chhetri scored 4 goals against the two college teams, including a hattrick against Evansville. The debut will make news halfway around the world in India, where the Wizards have become increasingly known. The team's official Facebook page has added about 5,000 people in the last week or so, mostly from India or fans of Chhetri would be my guess.
