New York City FC (1-4-3) is currently getting ready to take on the Seattle Sounders FC (4-2-1) in Major League Soccer action at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, May 3.
The club has had several intense training sessions, and has played with intensity on the pitch but just have not quite gotten the results they wanted yet.
Not helping the cause for New York City FC is the fact that they haven’t been able to field a healthy squad since the first match. Recently the club has had to deal with David Villa, Mix Diskerud, Jason Hernandez and others all currently recovering from injuries.
There have been many players that have stepped-up and the team is hoping that with continued hard work and efforts during their training sessions that the team will eventually be rewarded with a victory during the matches.
One such player that had stepped-up just recently was keeper Ryan Meara, who was nominated for MLS Save of the Week for Week 8.
Meara who tied a career-high seven saves in his first Major League Soccer match in nearly three seasons on April 24 at the Chicago Fire.
The Keeper who is on a season-long loan from the New York Red Bulls was called into action when regular keeper Josh Saunders had to sit out with a suspension.
It will be interesting to see the formation that Head Coach Jason Kreis will use against Seattle, has been on a bit of a roll. One of the many players to watch for is Clint Dempsey who has four goals and three assist thus far.
