Rookie Sealy set to join Wizards
For the first time since drafting forward Scott Sealy out of Wake Forest University with the 11th pick of the MLS SuperDraft, the Kansas City Wizards will get to see the Trinidad & Tobago international perform in camp.
"We just found out that Scott Sealy was able to obtain his work visa, so he'll be able to join us on [March] 16," said Wizards assistant coach Brian Bliss. "So we'll be able to get a look at him for the first time."
Sealy has been training with the T&T national team and was on the bench for their last World Cup qualifying match. He should see a lot of action as the Wizards will have an extended stay in Costa Rica before and after the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions' Cup is played Thursday against Deportivo Saprissa.
"We're staying there an extra six or seven days. We set up couple extra exhibition games. We have a game on Monday morning again Saprissa's reserves which will be good for our reserve guys as well. And then Tuesday night, we play against Alajuelense," Bliss said.
