Here’s your Group H line-up -
Felipe Martins -
Played for the Impact during its first three seasons in MLS before being traded to New York Red Bulls, scoring in each of the successful Canadian Championship Finals of 2013 and 2014.
Felipe is still #3 in the All-Time Impact list of MLS Assists on 24. Only Ignacio Piatti and Patrice Bernier can beat that!
He’s #6 in apearances (all comps) on 93 and # 11 in goals scored on 14.
Marco Donadel -
Spent the bulk of his career in Serie A with Fiorentina, Donadel, a combative midfielder also had success with the Italian u21 team in 2004 winning the UEFA u21 tournament and also an Olympic bronze model the same year.
In Montreal he made 83 appearances (all comps) scoring three times and providing 15 assists. Twenty three yellow-cards were collected, making him second-only to Hassoun Camara in the disciplinary list. He was also red carded three times.
Marco is well-remembered for his rocket in the 8th minute of a game v Columbus Crew at Stade Saputo in July 2015. It was his first goal for the club and an absolute peach from 25 yards.
Saphir Taider -
Represented Algeria at the 2014 World Cup when the North African nation played out an enthralling round of 16 encounter with eventual World Champions, Germany, who won 2-1 after extra time. He also represented his country at the following year’s AFCON in Guinea.
In addition to his 172 Serie A appearances with Inter, Bologna and Sassuolo, Saphir now has 76 appearances (all comps) with Montreal Impact under his belt, scoring 18 times (=4th overall) and providing 19 assists (5th overall).
Zakaria Diallo -
Joined the Impact from Brest in 2018, but injury ruled him out for the whole season. In 2019, Diallo begun the year in confident fashion, looking like a positive addition to the squad. His form dipped however as the season progressed amidst rumours of discord between him and coach Remi Garde. After 26 appearances (all comps) and 3 goals for the Stade Saputo outfit, he joined RC Lens in French Ligue 2 and won promotion with the northern club at his first attempt.
