Vancouver WhiteCaps vs Montreal Impact: Some Pre-Game information

credit: Montreal Impact

As the Montreal Impact make their final preparations before their trip to Vancouver, Jesse Marsch announces his 18-player roster that he will take to start the Conquest, in Vancouver.

Full 18-player roster vs the Vancouver WhiteCaps

Davy Arnaud, Patrice Bernier, Justin Braun, Jeb Brovsky, Matteo Ferrari, Mike Fucito, Josh Gardner, Justin Mapp, Felipe Martins, Miguel Montano, Sanna Nyassi, Donovan Ricketts, Greg Sutton, Shavar Thomas, Zarek Valentin, Tyson Wahl, Collen Warner, Andrew Wenger.

Note the absence of Eduardo Sebrango from the 18-player maximum allowed game day squad. No injuries have been announced for the 39-year old striker so we will consider his absence from the roster at the coach's choice.

While we are talking injuries ( or lack there-of) , the MLS has released its first ever injury report for the 2012 season and you will find below the injury details for both the Montreal Impact and the Vancouver WhiteCaps:

VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC -- OUT: FW Etienne Barbara (groin strain); GK Brian Sylvestre (R knee surgery); MF John Thorrington (L quad strain); DOUBTFUL: FW Atiba Harris (L knee pain); QUESTIONABLE: MF Floyd Franks (lower back pain); PROBABLE: MF Michael Nanchoff (L heel contusion); MF Russell Teibert (L groin pain); FW Eric Hassli (L knee pain)

Stay tuned on Friday for more analysis on this historical game for the Montreal Impact as they play their first ever MLS game. Like everything else for the 19th franchise, every step taken will be historical.
