Wizards won't change tactics in star forward's absence

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The Kansas City Wizards have lost Major
League Soccer's hottest goal scorer to the U-S National Team.
But Eddie Johnson's absence won't change Kansas City's offensive
mentality.
Johnson, selected to the national team for the Gold Cup regional
tournament, has nine goals this year. Six of those came in the
first-place Wizards' last two games.
But coach Curt Onalfo says the team still has plenty of scoring
options.
Forward Scott Sealy and forward-midfielder Davy Arnaud
(ar-KNOW') are both threats to score. And Onalfo says Brian Pore
and Yura Movsisyan (mahv-SIS'-e-ihn) could also play significant
offensive roles.
Sealy's availability is an unexpected plus for the Wizards. He
has played for Trinidad and Tobago, another team in the Gold Cup,
but was not selected for his national team because he has been
injured.
