Squad Selection: How will the injuries and call ups change the FCD lineup?

New, 4 comments

Two key players out on national team duty, one big injury sees a lot of changes coming.

A new month is here for FC Dallas as they kick into the summer months with a date against Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.

Oscar Pareja has a lot of lineup juggling to do after injuries and call ups hit the team this week. Right now we know Matt Hedges and Kellyn Acosta are gone with the United States men’s national team. Maynor Figueroa (Honduras) and Tesho Akindele (Canada) also received call ups for this month but given how neither plays a game until June 8 (or June 13 in Tesho’s case), those two should still be available come Saturday.

The big question will be how the defense will look without Hedges and Walker Zimmerman.

Here is what we know going into the match in terms of availability:

OUT: Walker Zimmerman (MCL strain), Paxton Pomykal (ankle strain)

LOAN: Coy Craft (OKC Energy), Anibal Chala (LDU Quito)

International Duty: Matt Hedges (USMNT), Kellyn Acosta (USMNT)

Not many players will be missing for this one, so the selection is pretty good for Pareja. Let us know who you picked below.
