Coudet to Sit Out vs Kansas City

Starting midfielder Eduardo Coudet will miss Saturday's Eastern Conference showdown against the Kansas City Wizards with a right calf strain sustained during Wednesday's friendly against Chivas Guadalajara. The 35-year-old Argentine has become a staple as a holding midfielder in Manager Peter Nowak's lineup, starting all seven matches he's played in since being signed by the Union on July 22.

The former River Plate member has yet to register a goal or assist in 521 minutes of league play, but he did assist on Sebastien Le Toux's game-winner against Celtic FC on July 14, the first appearance Coudet made for the Union in all competitions.
