Squad Selection: How does Pareja handle the international absences?

Five players, three of them regular starters will be out this weekend for FC Dallas.

MLS: FC Dallas at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas hosts the Portland Timbers tomorrow night in a big Western Conference clash that will begin to help shape the playoff picture for both clubs.

Oscar Pareja will be missing several players to international duty while the Timbers will be missing a few of their own to injuries and call ups as well.

We’ve seen plenty of roster rotation this season out of Pareja but this could be one of his biggest tests to date with the Timbers coming off a big 4-2 win over their Cascadia Cup rivals Seattle last weekend.

Here is what we do know in terms of availability for FCD this weekend:

OUT: Zach Loyd (concussion)

LOAN: Moises Hernandez (Rayo OKC)*, Timo Pitter (Energy FC), Colin Bonner (Energy FC)

INT Duty: Maynor Figueroa (Honduras), Aubrey David (Trinidad & Tobago), Carlos Gruezo (Ecuador), Kellyn Acosta (USA), Tesho Akindele (Canada)

*Hernandez is also out on international duty with Guatemala this week.
