With COVID-19, several union players have participated in the Health and Safety Protocol and Thursday’s training has been cancelled.
“I was able to return to practice today,” Union coach Jim Curtin told reporters on Friday. “We want to allow as many players as possible to participate in the match against NYCFC.”
“Our players have worked tirelessly to reach this point,” Curtin added. “I know they will be brave in the adversity we are facing.
“We stepped up in big moments all year round. Whether it’s an international absence or the challenge of CONCACAF, players lose their loved ones.
“Adversity inside and outside the field, this group always finds a way to step up. We are proud of our fans.”
