Strength in Numbers
City has been without key starters in the past few games due to injury and international call ups. Luckily, the players are trickling back to Dome Torrent’s roster.
Sean Johnson and Alex Callens returned to the Big Apple after competing for their respective national teams in international tournaments. Now that they are back, they will be available for selection in the Derby.
As far as injuries are concerned, Héber, who had been out with a hamstring injury, made his return to the XI in the U.S. Open Cup match against Orlando City SC. He has yet to make his comeback in regular-season games.
Along with Héber, Tony Rocha is back to full physicality and could make his return to the midfield on Sunday.
They will all make their return to Dome Torrent’s roster for selection in the regular season matchup against our rivals, the Red Bulls.
