HOW ACQUIRED: Signed to a one-year contract as a free agent on Dec. 14, 2018.

A winger/fullback that is just as capable scoring goals as he is setting them up, Wallace returned to MLS in 2017 after a season in Portugal and Brazil. He made 23 starts in his inaugural campaign with NYCFC, which included four goals and six assists. After an up-and-down 2018, he will look to make a splash in KC after signing with the club as a free agent..

OUTSIDE MLS: Spent the three months of 2016 with Portuguese first-division side Arouca, where he made two league appearances before being sold to Brazil's Sport Recife. Made 24 league appearances and scored four goals for the Brazilian side before rescinding his contract by mutual termination in February 2017.

INTERNATIONAL: Wallace marked his Costa Rica debut with the lone goal in a 1-0 friendly win over the U.S. on Sept. 2, 2011. He went on to join Los Ticos for the 2013 Concacaf Gold Cup, Copa Centroamericana tournaments in 2013 and 2014, and three qualifying matches ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Wallace appeared at his second Gold Cup in 2017, scoring in a 3-0 win over French Guyana, before helping Costa Rica secure a spot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a second-place finish in Concacaf’s Hexagonal. He made his World Cup debut as a second-half substitute in a 2-2 group-stage draw with Switzerland on June 27.

COLLEGE: Enjoyed a standout collegiate career at the Uni­versity of Maryland, leading the Terrapins to the 2008 NCAA national championship. Started all 46 games he played in over two seasons at Maryland (2007-08), recording 10 goals and four assists in the process.
