New York City FC will be far from full strength when it hosts the New England Revolution at Yankee Stadium Sunday night.
First of all, forward Rodney Wallace, who suffered a right abductor muscle injury while playing for Costa Rica in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, is healthy for selection for the 6 p.m. encounter. Midfielder Maxi Moralez also returns from a yellow-card ban.
Forward Miguel Camargo (non-displaced hip fracture) and defenders Ronald Matarrita (foot surgery) and Maxime Chanot (osteitis pubis inflammation), however, will be on the sidelines with injuries.
Rookie defender James Sands has recovered from the injury that kept him out of the last few games. He has left the team to train with the U.S Under-17 side for its U-17 World Cup preparations in Prague, the Czech Republic.
Midfielder Alex Ring and defender Ethan White also will miss the match due to yellow-card accumulation.
