It seems that almost every international break New York City FC endures ends with at least one player getting at least a minor injury. We’ve seen it with David Villa, Ronald Matarrita... hell, Rodney Wallace got hurt on international break during a hot streak and never really found his groove for the remainder of his stint with the club.
But, NYCFC have avoided the injury bug this time around. As a matter of fact, the injury list is actually completely clear as the club prepares to face off with Toronto FC, unlike last week when Ismael Tajouri-Shradi was listed as questionable.
The only unavailable player to speak of is newest signing Héber, who is still in Brazil awaiting his visa. According to manager Domé Torrent, NYCFC expects him to report to training “next week.”
Overall, very few complaints heading into this one. Three points, please!
