Chhetri scores for Kansas in friendly match

April 29, 2010 16:31 IST

Indian striker Sunil Chhetri returned among goals in Kansas City Wizards' 7-1 thrashing of Baker University in a friendly match at the Swope Park Training Center in Kansas City, US.

Chhetri, who made his KC Wizards debut in a Lamar Hunt US Open match but yet to play his first Major League Soccer game, scored his side's fifth goal in the second half.

Kei Kamara struck twice while Josh Wolff, Davy Arnaud, Igor Kostrov and Santiago Hirsig scored one each.

Chhetri, whose signing with KC Wizards generated a wide media coverage back home and the United States, will meet India's first Formula One driver Narain Karthikeyan on Friday.

Karthikeyan will be in Kansas City for Sunday's NASCAR World Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway.

KC Wizards have played four MLS matches so far, winning two, losing one and drawing one. They play Houston Dynamos on Saturday in their fifth game.
