No real surprises in Bruce Arena’sNew England line-up. It’s pretty much as you’d expect, with Tommy McNamara getting the pick for the right midfield slot.
Player off the Year Matt Turner is in goal, Kessler and Farrell provide the central defensive cover in front of him and Carles Gil starts despite limited game time recently.
Bunbury, Bou and the improving Buksa are all listed in an attacking starting eleven.
For Montreal, the defence in front of Clement Diop could be a flat back four or a five, with three centre-backs name in the eleven; Camacho, Binks and Fanni.
Thierry Henry his opted not to go with Mustafa Kizza from the start, Corrales begins in the wide left defensive berth, with Zach Brault-Guillard as expected on the right flank.
The midfield, if it’s five at the back looks like Sejdic and Maciel, with Bojan playing behind the main strikers, Romell Quioto and Anthony Jackson-Hamel.
