With the return of Major League Soccer through the MLS is Back Tournament in Orlando, Massive Report is asking supporters to select the Columbus Crew SC starting lineup for the opening game against FC Cincinnati. Select who you would like to start of the players available.
It’s been four months since the Crew last played a competitive soccer match. When we last left the club, Milton Valenzuela suffered a torn meniscus and was slated to be out for two weeks. Vito Wormgoor didn’t make the Crew’s traveling 18-man roster to the Seattle Sounders because of an injury suffered in the Week 1 win against New York City FC. There were questions going into their third scheduled game of the season, against Real Salt Lake, but time has resolved those injury questions and you get the full slate of Black & Goold players to choose from this week.
Fill out the form below with who you think should start the first of three group matches for the Crew. Before each match, Massive Report will share the Supporter’s XI and a staff writer will share who they think will start. Share your opinion on who Caleb Porter should play and in subsequent weeks, you’ll also choose the lineups against New York Red Bulls and Atlanta United FC.
