Hello and welcome to the fifth round of E Pluribus Choose-Em! Minnesota United has a home match against Columbus Crew SC on the 4th of July.
As far as absences go, there will be a lot:
International Duty- Francisco Calvo (CRC), Jermaine Taylor (JAM), Johan Venegas (CRC)
Injury (OUT)- Marc Burch, Vadim Demidov, Thomas de Villardi, Brent Kallman
Injury (QUESTIONABLE)- Joseph Greenspan, Abu Danladi
Injury (PROBABLE)- Sam Cronin
Kallman is a no-go. Greenspan and Danladi are technically questionable, but they both practiced today. https://t.co/LDJROiOqwN— Megan Ryan (@theothermegryan) July 3, 2017
The lineup will certainly require some creativity—especially in defense—this week. There above injury statuses are as of Sunday night. They will be updated on occasion, but may not be current. It is recommended that participants wait until the official injury report (which will be placed into this post, and labeled as such) is released before making predictions. You’re always allowed to post a reply to your comment with changes to your lineups should the need arise.
Good luck (you’ll need it) this holiday, Loons fans!
