FC Dallas vs DC United: Squad Selection

Big test for Dallas with 7 players absent

FC Dallas hits the road again this Saturday kicking off against a struggling DC United side who have yet to find a win to start their 2016 campaign. Dallas though will be in a very interesting position as they'll be without seven players this weekend due to international call-ups. Not to mention that Dallas "officially" still has a couple of players on the injured list (as of 3/23/2016), though rumors are that Craft is actually available.


M Alex Zendejas (osteitis pubis)

M Kellyn Acosta (international duty)

D Walker Zimmerman (international duty)

G Jesse Gonzalez (international duty)

D Moises Hernandez (international duty)

D Maynor Figueroa (international duty)

F Tesho Akindele (international duty)

D Atiba Harris (international duty)

(Phew. That was a lot of names) More than likely we'll see Chris Seitz return in goal and Zach Loyd will be reinstated back into the lineup after nursing an injury that kept him out of the first two matches. So, let's continue to assume that you're Oscar Pareja. What will you do? Will you stick with the 4-2-3-1 that's been relatively successful thus far? Will you scrap that and go with a 3-5-2 type formation instead given the significant lack of defenders? Will this be the time to break in the youngsters Timo Pitter, Aaron Guillen and Colin Bonner?

Tell us how you'll handle this tricky roster situation below.
