With the international break running rampant, it has become quite regular to see a team’s players head in and out of the locker room to join their country for summer events. Whether it be tournaments, cups, or friendlies, every team is affected, and there is no question that FC Dallas and Oklahoma City Energy FC have been affected.
There hasn’t been a player this season more prone to moving around that Coy Craft. The 20-year-old midfielder has spent a bulk of his season moving north and south from Dallas to Oklahoma City, playing for both FCD and the Energy during their respective 2017 seasons. In addition to his stints with the United States U-20 side, it has been a busy year for Craft.
With that being said, Craft’s current state is that he is not with the Oklahoma City Energy FC. The 20-year-old FC Dallas youngster did not travel with the OKC as they prepare to head West for a U.S. Open Cup match against the Colorado Rapids.
The man with the beard and the bun has earned the wonderful opportunity to represent his national team, Puerto Rico, this summer. With his country preparing to take on Indonesia this week, Laurendi will have to miss the Energy’s upcoming two games. This will likely result in CJ Cochran filling in at the goalkeeper position for the next two matches.
Much like Craft, Lissek moved north and south between Dallas and OKC. Loaned to Dallas as a backup goalkeeper while Dallas dealt with injuries, Lissek had the opportunity to train with an MLS side. Now, Lissek is back with the OKC Energy and will travel with the team to Colorado for their U.S. Open Cup match.
