Summer of Soccer
The call-ups have been rolling in and players are being scooped into national team duty, which means they will not be available for Thursday’s match.
Players like Alex Callens, Sean Johnson, Ronald Matarrita, and Ebenezer Ofori are reporting to their respective national teams. Callens is off to Peru for Copa America prep and Matarrita is headed to Costa Rica for a Gold Cup training camp, meaning both defenders won’t be available in the backline for the Boys in Blue.
Meanwhile, Johnson, who has been a staple in the goal for Dome Torrent, is headed to the USMNT, which leaves the question of who will be starting in the net for NYCFC?
Last, but not least, Ebenezer Ofori who has one goal under his belt and has been a solid force to be reckoned with in the midfield is in Ghana with the Black Stars.
With the international break looming, and a Summer of Soccer under way, NYCFC’s depth will be tested in the upcoming matches and it will be interesting to see the Starting XI coach draws up for this match.
