sports Updated: Apr 14, 2010 23:45 IST

India's Sunil Chhetri made his Kansas City Wizards debut in a 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rapids in a U.S. Open Cup qualifier on Tuesday, a day after his visa and international transfer certificate were cleared.

Chhetri, the first Indian national on a Major League Soccer team, started and played the first half for Kansas City. He agreed to terms on March 25 and was added to the 24-man Wizards squad on Monday.

The Wizards' Facebook page has added more than 6,000 fans since Chhetri signed. He had a decent scoring chance stopped early and received yellow card in the 20th minute for taking down Thompson from behind.
