FC Dallas vs. Sporting KC: Lineup Notes 📝

Tonight, FC Dallas will battle for a spot in the semifinals of the 2024 US Open Cup as they face Sporting Kansas City.

The tournament winner will host the Indy Eleven team, playing in the USL Championship, in late August.

Both clubs now have their squads, so let’s take a closer look at them.

Peter Luccin opted for a heavily rotating lineup in Sunday’s match against SKC, and has now decided on a lineup that will be as close to a first-class squad as possible.

In goal, Maarten Paes will once again be between the posts. The defensive group in front of him sees the return of Sebastien Ibeagh (after Sunday’s yellow card suspension) alongside Nkosi Tafari and Marco Farfan.

The midfield is drastically different to Sunday night, with Asier Illarramendi and Sebastian Lletget starting in the middle, Bernard Kamungo and Paul Arriola on the wings.

Up top, Petar Musa starts with Tsiki Ntsabeleng and Logan Farrington behind him.

I think we’ll probably see Sam Junqua at some point. Same can be said for Nolan Norris, Eugene Ansah, and Herbert Endeley.

Suspended: none
Out: Geovane Jesus (right knee), Alan Velasco (left knee), Paxton Pomykal (knee), Jesus Ferreira (hamstring), Patrickson Delgado (knee), Liam Fraser (upper leg)
Doubtful: none
Loaned: Isaiah Parker
International Obligations: None

Looks like this will be the first choice for SKC.
