Game notes from Kansas City

These are courtesy of a solid media relations staff in KC:
-Kansas City will regain the services of captain and central defender Jimmy Conrad after the veteran was an unused substitute as the United States clinched a berth in the 2010 FIFA World Cup with a 3-2 win last Saturday in Honduras. Conrad was also an unused sub in Wednesday’s dramatic come-from-behind tie against Costa Rica that forced Costa Rica into a two-game playoff with Uruguay for a place in the World Cup. Conrad has played in 23 games this season for the Wizards, missing matches through U.S. National Team duty. He has one goal on the season and has helped anchor Kansas City’s youthful back line.
-Two of Major League Soccer’s top scorers will face off tomorrow night, as Fredy Montero of Sounders FC and Josh Wolff of Kansas City take the field. Montero has 12 goals on the season to lead Seattle, tying him for 3rd place in the League. Kansas City’s team-leader Wolff has equaled a career high with 10 strikes this year, tying him for 7th in MLS.
